• Entertainment — With virtual reality becoming, well, a reality with such breakthrough systems like the HTC Vive headset (which was ultimately our grand-prize winner), the way people entertain themselves will never be the same.
• Gadgets — Artificial intelligence and robotics filled out this category pretty heavily, with Amazon’s AI assistant “Echo” and professional-grade drones for filming, but there were other winners too, like a smartwatch that can last 10 hours on one charge. Hint, it’s not Apple.
• Health — This year was a big one for medical research and development—the most notable achievement being the VSV-EBOV Ebola vaccine. Most vaccines take 10 years to develop, while the VSV-EBOV took only 10 months, and was developed during an epidemic at that.
• How to Create a Robot Icon — Star Wars: The Force Awakens is coming. And we at Popular Science couldn’t be more excited about it. Which is why we sat down with the creators of the already beloved rolling ball droid BB-8 to pick their brains about the little robot.
• Next — The future of language with Columbia University linguist John McWhorter, using brewer’s yeast to streamline the production of medical painkillers, the global race to build the fastest supercomputer, and more.
• Manual — How to make sweet holiday music with a candy cane, cut a record from a tortilla, steampunk penny crushers, and more.
