What if you could throw a virtual party whenever you want that your friends from around the world could attend at a second’s notice? That’s the idea behind Houseparty, an iOS and Android (click links to download) video chatting app designed for spontaneous conversation.

The way it works is pretty simple: When you launch the app you create a chat room of sorts, and then your friends who also have the app can drop in. Your friends can set things up so they’re notified whenever you launch the app (if they definitely don’t want to miss you), and you have the ability to invite friends into a chat room that don’t make it there on their own.

Six years ago I moved from the east coast to San Francisco, and I’ve found the app to be an amazing way to stay connected to some of my best friends that aren’t nearby. There are infinite ways to video chat someone these days, and we use those too, but there’s something nice about being able to say “Oh, Kayla is online” and drop in for a chat.

WE COULD BRAG. We could say our 30th annual list of the most transformative products and discoveries required trucks full of experts, hours of toil, and countless friendship-ending debates. That's true, but you just want the good stuff. So read on.

A robot just made me french fries. Delicious, they cooked for four minutes less than the instructions dictated. One minute less, they'd've been soggy. A few more, burnt. An eagle-eyed artificially intelligent oven made the timing and temperature calls. My contributions: Arrange fries on tray, slide tray into oven, acquire ketchup. (Invent ketchup drone?)

The smart cooker on this list, which we’ve nicknamed the Millennial Oven, perfectly follows the trajectory of innovation over the past 30 years. It’s built around bedrock technologies—convection cooking, image recognition, microprocessors, compact cameras, wireless radios—but elevated by the addition of an anyone-proof interface.
