Yeah, my favorite was the Straw. I`d pay a lot more than $3 for it (camping, anyone?), but to the people that would actually need it, it`s probably too expensive.

Sigh.

WHAT TURTLES? I didnt see any. There are some really cool things on there. I liked that straw, that could really come in handy when there`s no water around and also that "skin". Among other things.

Biodegradable doesn`t mean it falls apart in a few weeks. Iron, for example, is biodegradable. Biodegradbale plastics -- of which the car is made -- are generally only designed to break down when exposed to specific natural microorganisms.

Too many! If they`re a list of the top inventions of year, shouldn`t there be a cap on the number? Otherwise it just becomes a list of "everything we think is cool" and you don`t actually have to decide what`s the "top".

That car thing was awsome, but what really got me, is way later on, several pictures down the line, there is something they have made, that is like a robotic suit that helps the elderly and disabled gain motor skills. They say it will cost 14000-19000 dollars, but that`s pretty cheap for the ability to walk if you ask me.

The stuff on here was way cooler than I expected. I could definitely use those tires, that alarm clock is a very good idea, & I bet those food sprays don`t actually taste very good. Oh, and those turtles were adorable.
