13 35 10

Six Israeli tech firms have been named in this year’s annual list of TIME magazine’s 100 Best Inventions “that are changing the way we live, work, play and think about what’s possible.”

The global “groundbreaking inventions” of 2020 published earlier this month include a skill building robot, hydrogen power for airplanes, vodka out of think air, alt-pork, a hands-free tooth-brushing device, and mRNA vaccines to fight COVID-19.

To compile the 2020 list, TIME asked for nominations both from its editors and correspondents around the world, and via an online application process. The jury then evaluated each contender on “key factors, including originality, creativity, effectiveness, ambition and impact.”
