Time_best_inventions_2007 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)
