The Most Innovative Products Of 2007

Nearly 400 products were entered in the 2007 Tech Innovators Awards, in 15 categories. Entries were narrowed down to 48 finalists, and then 16 winners selected.

The winners weren't necessarily the most cutting-edge and sexy products on the market. Instead, they tended to have innovations that solved problems at lower costs, and were not needlessly complex.
