A virtual-reality experience that alters the wearer's sense to simulate autism is one of the best designed products of the year.

Good product design has the power to redefine the way we interact with the world.


That can mean presenting a new, more efficient way to cook dinner or changing the way parents interact with a sick child.

In that spirit, the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) has announced 77 finalists for its 2017 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA), which are given to designers and concepts that have achieved excellence in product design in the past year.
