These products—including holograms, robots and more—are poised to tackle some of the construction industry's toughest issues.

For more than 20 years, Time magazine has been compiling lists of the year's 100 best inventions. But this year, for the first time, Time's editors doubled that list—a sign of how quickly tech is transforming many sectors. 

Holograms of buildings viewed via augmented reality headsets, drones controlled by a joystick on a tablet and forklifts able to be operated from thousands of miles away are just a few of the innovations on Time's 200 Best Inventions of 2022 list that could help solve some of the biggest productivity obstacles facing the construction industry. 

Though not every invention on the list is tech-related, many of the breakthrough innovations are powered by artificial intelligence, augmented reality and robotics. A handful of them could even prove revolutionary for the construction industry. 

Check out the full article from Construction Dive for more on six of the most construction-focused innovations that made this year's list.
