"And though we aim to make what's on the site objective rather than subjective, we're picking the Technology of the Day. Some may feel we won't get it right. Which is why every technology page on the site has a voting banner right at the top. Visitors can endorse what they think deserves an award by clicking on that voting banner. The innovation that receives the most votes after one week wins our 'Technology of the Week™' award." made its debut on April 15.

Great ideas are great ideas, regardless if they're breakthrough products, breakthrough research or just breakthroughs period. Taking it one step further, beyond all this amazing work, there's something here bigger than all of us. We not only marvel at that, we find it unstoppably inspiring."
