Today, TIME reveals its annual list of the 100 Best Inventions that are making the world better, smarter, and even a bit more fun.

To assemble the 2019 TIME Best Inventions list, TIME solicited nominations across a variety of categories from editors and correspondents around the world, as well as through an online application process. Each contender was then evaluated on key factors, including originality, effectiveness, ambition, and influence. The result: 100 groundbreaking inventions that are changing the way we live, work, play and think about what’s possible. Caribu will appear in TIME’s print magazine (18 million weekly readers2) and on TIME’s website (32.5 million monthly unique visitors3). It will be promoted across TIME’s social channels, including on Twitter (16 million followers), Facebook (12.9 million fans) and Instagram (7.2 million followers).

"It's 2019, and when I tell people that they can read and draw together with a child in a video-call, they look at me like I'm crazy. I'm always shocked that people can truly wrap their heads around self-driving cars, AI assistants, or exploring Mars but when we talk about what Caribu does, it reminds me each and every time that we truly invented something people haven't ever imagined could be possible," said Max Tuchman, Caribu's CEO.

Caribu provides a shared screen video-call so that a child and trusted adult, like a parent or grandparent, can read the same book together, or draw on a coloring sheet and play tic-tac-toe, all while seeing each other laugh and smile during the truly transformative experience. Caribu is great for any families that are separated by distance (divorce, traveling for work, military, grandparents who live far away) and is one of the few cross-platform apps to help families video-call from iOS to Android. Download it today on your smartphone or tablet, or gift Caribu to a family member that needs to revolutionize their video-calls with their family by going to the Caribu gift shop.
