Top 25: Innovations

Abstract:
It is safe to say that the first words of someone who walks away from a car accident unharmed are not, "Thank goodness for the advent of nanotechnology [No. 21] and MEMS [microelectromechanical system, No. 11]."

Yet without the tiny silicon chip that sensed the impending collision, the airbag would not have deployed in time.

"The device that causes an airbag to inflate in a crash is a nanotech device," said David Kirkpatrick, senior editor at Fortune Magazine.
