Innovation in product design is all about balance. Push too hard and you’ll alienate people. Play it safe, and you risk being outmaneuvered by your competitors. The items in this list, all of which debuted this year, reside in that perfect little Goldilocks Zone of product design; not too cautious, but not too crazy, either, these designs get forward-thinking just right.

01 Nike HyperAdapt 1.0

Nike spent 28 years developing theHyperAdapt 1.0, its self-lacing, Back to The Future -inspired shoe, and it’s a serious feat of engineering. The shoe is stuffed with advanced technology, but you wouldn’t know that from looking at it. A lace engine in the sole attaches to proprietary Flyknit filaments, which surround the foot. When the wearer steps into the shoe, a sensor alertsthe engine, which cinchesthefilaments around the foot in search of the perfect fit. The result is perfectly tightened set of laces that you neverhave to touch.

02 Xiaomi Mi Mix

The most stunning phone of the year didn’t come from Apple or Google. It came from Chinese company Xiaomi, whoseMi Mix is an impressive piece of industrial design. The phone’s 6.4 inch screen extends to the edge of the phone, which gives it the appearance of a glassy infinity pool. The screen is so big, the phone is essentially bezel-less, which meant the selfie camera had to be pushed to the bottom of the phone and the fingerprint sensor to the backside. Xiaomi made similar concessions with the speakers, of which there’s only one. Sound from the phone comes from a piezoelectric actuator, which converts vibrations into sound. For now, the Mi Mix is only available in China, but don’t be surprised ifsimilar full-screen phones start showing up in theUS.

03 Autodesk's Elbo Chair

Autodesk’sElbo Chair is the result of an uncommon partnership. Designers in the company’s generative design lab harnessed the power of algorithms to make the organic wooden seat. To start, the designers fed a 3-D model of a chair inspired by Hans Wegner’s iconic Round Chair and Berkeley Mills’ Lambda Chair into Dreamweaver, Autodesk’s generative design software. Next, theystipulated that the seat be 18 inches off the ground and capable of supporting 300 pounds. Thenthey let the algorithm do its thing. Every so often, the humanswould pick one of the algorithm’s designs,and the software would propagatea new lineage based on their selection. The result was the chair you see here―a skeletalcreation that points toward a future in whichdesigners collaborate with algorithms onnew ideas.

04 Apple iPhone 7

At first glance, theiPhone 7 isn’t all that different from the 6 and 6s. It’s blacker, sure, but it still has those softly rounded corners and that big, glassy screen. What distinguishes theiPhone 7 is what it’s missing. The phone is the first without a headphone jack, which means you’re either buying dongles for your existing cans or upgrading to a wireless pair. Whether you love it or hate it doesn’t matter―if other companies follow Apple’s lead (and they probably will), the company will have setyet another precedent for how you’ll interact with gadgets in the future.

05 Impossible Project I-1

The Impossible Project’s first camera, theI-1, is both an homage to the past and nod to the future. The Berlin-based company, which has been making instant film since 2008, worked with Swedish studio Teenage Engineering to blend the best design elementsof old Polaroid cameras with modern trappings. The camera’s form is still boxy, likethe original, but it’s also more compact. Clevertechnological touches, like the LED-ring flash and a Bluetooth-connected app, help you dial in on that vintage look.
