The best inventions of 2009 from a light bulb that may be worth ten million dollars to an electric eye, that sees for you. The list is out; this is it right here, from Time magazine, Time website, Time.com, which is a partner of CNN.com. They say the best invention of the year, is this NASA’s Ares Rocket, we have some video for you.

“Three! Two! One! Ignition, and lift off of Ares I-X, testing concepts for the future of new Rocket design.”

Time calls this the best and smartest and coolest thing built in 2009, it is designed to usher1 in the next generation of space travel returning astronauts to the moon, and one day bringing people to Mars.

And let’s check out more of the top inventions. We’re gonna zoom2 in on the screen behind me. We’re starting off with this, an electric eye. MIT researchers are developing a micro-chip that can help blind people regain3 partial sight. The chip will be implanted into patient’s eye that contains a tiny camera that transmits signals to the brain.

Check out this one, tweeting by thinking. A doctoral student at University of Wisconsin found a way to hook something up basically that monitors brain activity. It’s able to concentrate on a letter and it read them automatically, he’s able to use that effectively to type out a short tweet .

Over here, this is the ten-million-dollar light bulb. This could win a prize being run by the Department of Energy that is automatically worth ten million dollars. It uses less than 10 Watts4 and it has as much light as a normal 60-Watt-light bulb, and lasts 25,000 hours. Let’s bank to a couple more over here.
This is called the smart thermostat5. This is a thermostat that would tell you how much energy all your appliances are using, and would be able to control them - turn them on or off. 

I’ll end up with this one, take a look at, controller-free gaming. You wouldn’t need to hold anything in your hand to play with video games, you could use body movements and sound.

Now, all these are some of the best inventions of the year. Time also points some of the worst inventions of the year. And we can zoom back in, so I can show you two of what’s been declaring the worst inventions of the year to yet to see. Take a look at here--snuggies for dogs, come on, they are basically saying what are people thinking, and this you really have to see to believe there it is, the gas-mask-bra, a bra that would break apart into two different gas masks.

Now, officially end by time. Yeah, one of the worst inventions of the year. All right, this is kind of awkward charge. Let’s get to the graphics6. So you can see, oh you can see the entire list of top 50 best inventions of the year go into Time. It’s the blog in CNN.com/Josh, also Josh also Facebook or Twitter/JoshLevsCNN. Let's know what you think.
And hey, some of these may be on the market and not too long.
