The Best 25 Inventions of the Year

The cover story in the current issue of TIME focuses on the 25 best inventions of the year. Perhaps not surprisingly, the Apple iPhone was ranked as the #1 gadget of the year as well as the #1 invention of the year. Other notable inventions of 2007 include: a battery from Sony that runs on sugar, a unique water works project developed by MIT, and a new artificial leg prosthesis. As a sidebar to the cover story, TIME includes a list of the Best Inventors of All Time. (Hint: If your name ain’t Leonardo or Galileo, you never really had a chance of appearing on this list)
