The Good Housekeeping Research Institute has announced winners of its VIP Awards for the most innovative products of the year.

There are a lot of new innovations every year, but the very innovative product awards helps you separate the best from the rest-starting with an all in one printer from HP. It copies, faxes and scans like other printers. But this is the only one that can also connect directly to the Internet.

"Once this printer is connected directly to the Internet, you can get applications straight to it. So that means you can print and view documents without even turning your computer on. Things like Google Calendar, Google Maps, USA Today and the Disney Store," said Stacy Genovese of Good Housekeeping.

Nikon's Coolpix camera comes with a built in projector. You can actually project the image of your pictures on a wall.

"This camera is really innovative. Instead of having to huddle around the camera with your friends to see pictures, you now project really clear images up to 40 inches on a wall," said Rachel Rothman of Good Housekeeping.

And finally from the world of hair care comes the Remington Frizz Therapy Iron. The flat iron helps protect your hair from the elements including UV rays.
