Each year, TIME highlights inventions that are making the world better, smarter, and even a little more interesting.
To put together our 2021 list, we solicited nominations from TIME editors and reporters around the world, as well as through an online application process. We then evaluate each candidate on a number of key factors, including originality, creativity, effectiveness, ambition, and impact.
The result is a list that includes innovative, eco-friendly jeans dyes, a truly novel pasta shape, groundbreaking vaccines for COVID-19 and malaria – and much more. .
