What is the National Medal of Technology and Innovation and why would you want one? Well, it's only the highest honor bestowed for the innovators of a grand technological achievement. And the president of the United States himself will hand you your award. The medal is awarded annually to individuals, teams (up to four individuals), companies or divisions of companies for their outstanding contributions. Photo courtesy of USPTO
