​What was 2013's technology of the year?

2013, your end is in sight, and it's time to start taking stock of the last twelve months. Today, we want your pick for the discovery, tech, or invention of the year.

Maybe you'll choose something that was invented or discovered just this year. Or perhaps something that became widely available or whose usage finally took off. Or you could take a historical look and tell us what invention future generations will call the one that defines the year.

Make your call and then tell us in the comments just why your pick deserves to be 2013's tech of the year.
