The editors of Design News, during a live ceremony held last night at the Pacific Design & Manufacturing Show in Anaheim, Calif., announced the winners of our 2012 annual Golden Mousetrap Awards.
"We saw many exceptional, cutting-edge products submitted to the program this year," said Jennifer Campbell, executive editor of Design News. "It was a challenge for us to select just one winner in each category. We congratulate the winners on their innovations and their achievement."
