Innovation 2015

Winners will be chosen this week and announced on Friday, June 20. Here's your part in all this, Dear Reader:

As noted, winners will be evaluated by a sort of reverse American Idol system: that means we'll take popular vote into consideration, and the final selection will be made by a panel of judges. We're looking for high points in three areas:

  • Efficiency - how well does it solve a real-life problem for people living with diabetes?
  • Clinical Efficacy — how realistic and applicable is this product from a medical standpoint?
  • Aesthetics - it's the look and feel, Baby! How good is the pure design?

So, we'd like to hear from you on which of the 20 submitted design concepts appeal to you the most! Here's a run-down of the entries:
