Microsoft’s motion sensor Kinect won both overall Gadget of the Year and Gaming Gadget of the Year, while high-concept gaming device the Razer Switchblade picked up the prestigious Innovation of the Year award.

The Kinect is a worthy double winner, having done away with the controller to revolutionise gaming – and being confirmed by Guinness World Records as the fastest-selling consumer electronic device of all time in the process.

And gaming’s next revolution could be just around the corner in the shape of the Razer Switchblade. This cutting-edge tech combines an infinitely customisable keyboard, which metamorphoses to suit the game being played, with touchscreen technology and Intel’s Atom processor to create full-spectrum PC gaming on the move.

Moving from concept to reality, Switchblade’s jaw-dropping tech can be seen in Razer’s just-released gaming laptop, the Razer Blade.

“The concept for this mini console could be the start of something revolutionary,” says Luke Peters, Editor of T3. “If Razer decides to license its technology further afield, we could see it appearing in tablets, mobile phones and even home appliances. That is a mouth-watering prospect.”

The T3 Gadget Awards is the world’s biggest technology awards and 2011, its fifth year, was the best yet – with a record-breaking 960,000-plus votes cast.

Samsung’s Android-powered Galaxy S II beat the iPhone in Phone of the Year, and Apple were also pipped by Google to Tech Brand of the Year. Amazon and its Kindle picked up two awards: Retailer of the Year and Commuter Gadget of the Year.

After a year when social media demonstrated how central technology is becoming to our everyday lives, Twitter and Facebook both picked up gongs.

Twitter won Digital Media Service of the Year, after being involved in everything from the super-injunction scandal to the Arab spring uprising; and Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg was voted Tech Personality of the Year, beating off competition from the likes of Lady Gaga and Stephen Fry.

David Attenborough picked up the Outstanding Contribution to Technology Award, in recognition of a career championing the cutting-edge of tech through his world-famous nature programmes.

“I’ve been at this game rather a long time,” says Sir David,“so this award from T3 is a culmination. It means a lot to me.”
