Votes are in: Here’s the ‘Coolest thing made in Idaho’

Last month, BoiseDev told you about the Coolest Thing Made in Idaho contest hosted by the Idaho Manufacturing Alliance.

In October, manufacturers and inventors from across Idaho submitted more than 100 products that then went through a public voting process.

So what is “Coolest Thing Made in Idaho?” Black Sage’s Sawtooth – a device designed to detect, identify and take down drones using radar, infrared imagers, and radiofrequency detection.

Located in Boise, Black Sage provides anti-drone systems to military organizations, internal security agencies and airport authorities worldwide.

“Sawtooth is capable of solving problems for people all around the world and ultimately save lives,” Black Sage’s co-founder Ross Lamm said.

There were two contest runner up winners:

  • Campbell Company’s Guardian Wave – a non-contact pedestrian signal that works with a hand wave.
  • In the Ditch Towing Company’s Side Puller – a multi-size puller designed to help tow trucks quickly recover vehicles.
