Who would have thought that a keyless lock would take home last year’s prize?  Probably anyone who’s ever had to open their door at night while carrying a bag of groceries. The Kevo Kwikset lock was a harbinger of the Internet of Things.
The online voters looked at Skulpt, a handheld gadget that can actually detect what’s muscle and what’s fat on your body and transmit that data to your phone. Another harbinger of the quantified self still to come.
