These are just some of the inventions created by talented men and women under 30 who have made this year’s Forbes magazine’s 30 Under 30 list. The 2023 edition of the annual list, which is in its 12th year, was published on Tuesday (November 29).

Candidates are evaluated on factors including funding, revenue, social impact, inventiveness, and potential, and the sectors, of which there are 20 in total, ranging from social media and music to energy and consumer technology.
