BOSTON, Nov. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, TIME reveals its annual list of the 100 Best Inventions that are making the world better, smarter and even a bit more fun, and has chosen Owl Labs' Meeting Pro Owl as the winner for the Connectivity category.
For 2020's list, TIME solicited nominations from its editors and correspondents around the world and through an online application process. Submissions were then evaluated on factors including originality, effectiveness, ambition and impact. The results: everything from a smarter beehive to a greener tube of toothpaste to the technology that could catalyze a COVID-19 vaccine.
"We're honored to be recognized by TIME as one of the best inventions of 2020, as well as to be featured alongside other category-leading and trailblazing products," said Frank Weishaupt, CEO, Owl Labs. "In a year that has seen many challenges and transformations, it's a humbling experience to have our hard work and value be highlighted in such a monumental capacity. As remote and hybrid environments become the norm, we're focused on sustaining innovation to ensure our products enable the new business and educational landscapes."
The Meeting Owl Pro, Owl Labs' newest product, is a smart 360° camera, mic, and speaker device all in-one. Sitting in the center of the table, it uses vision and voice recognition to shift the camera focus onto who's speaking, helping all participants feel like they're in the same room. Owl Labs products are used by more than 50,000 companies globally, across an array of business categories and use-cases; including Nike, Harvard University, Home Depot, SoulCycle, University of Pennsylvania, Ro, Ogilvy, Andela and RXBAR.
