The R&D Magazine has announced the winners of its 45th Annual Awards for Brilliant Inventions - the "Oscars of Inventions", as The Chicago Tribune once called them.
"For 45 years, the prestigious R&D 100 Awards have been helping companies provide the important initial push a new product needs to compete successfully in the marketplace. The winning of an R&D 100 Award provides a mark of excellence known to industry, government, and academia as proof that the product is one of the most innovative ideas of the year. " (cite from the R&D Magazine)And: the LEGO(R) MINDSTORMS(R) NXT is amongst them! It's even listed as one of the 10 Most Brilliant Inventions the renowned InventorSpot has destilled from the winners.
"The results are incredibly diverse, spread out over 50 categories, including Energy, Environmental, Lifesciences, Process Technology, and Software, to name but a few." (cite from GearLog)
Congratulations (but well-deserved)!
