Popular Science (that's PopSci to you cool kids) just released their 23rd annual Best of What's New awards. Inside are just two video game gadgets and a bit of a backhand for the Wii and Xbox 360.

The magazine's awards go to 100 innovations that, according to PopSci, "indicate where technology is headed in the future."

While the Computing section of the awards are devoted to displays, laptops and Photoshop, yes Photoshop, the Home Entertainment category has some game.

Making the list: The recently released OnLive and Sony's Playstation Move.

OnLive gets the nod because of it's ability to deliver high-end computer games without the need for high-end computers, all over a broadband connection.


The Move? PopSci calls the Move controller the "first motion-capture game system accurate enough to attract the hardcore gamers who consider the Wii and Microsoft Kinect to be kids' stuff." Yikes, those are fighting words. I wonder if PopSci knows what they've gotten themselves into.
