BREAKTHROUGH PRODUCTS THAT APPLY TECHNOLOGY TO BENEFIT HUMANITY

Posted by: Laurence Harmon on 9/29/2010

The Tech Awards is an international program that honors innovation from around the world.  Winners of the award have developed products that apply technology that benefit humanity.  An international panel of judges nominates three "Laureates" in the following categories:  Environment, Economic Development, Education, Equality, and Health.

Launched in 2000 by the Tech Museum of Innovation, the Tech Awards recognize individuals, for-profit companies, and nonprofit organizations from around the world. An international panel of judges nominate three Laureates in each of the following five categories: Environment, Economic Development, Education, Equality and Health

Pictured here is a jet-injection system that employs air pressure to deliver vaccines and drugs without the use of needles.  Pharmajet's product, a finalist in this year's Tech Awards program, prevents cross-contamination and needle-related injuries.  Best of all, perhaps, is the fact that the system helps cut down on waste and could save billions of dollars in annual needle costs.
