Passionate inventors in modest workshops around the world, often backed by little more than ambition and a big idea, are minting surprising new technologies that stand to change the world.
Popular Science can't get enough of these audacious makers, so we celebrate the best of them each year in our Invention Awards issue—but to find them we rely on readers like you.
We want to know about any game-changing innovations developed by determined, independent inventors (not big academic or corporate R&D labs). Maybe you're an engineer designing a revolutionary tool in your garage, or an electronics hobbyist who crowdfunded the development of a great new gadget.
