The smartphone has been voted the best invention over the past 20 years by Today FM Ski Trippers.

As part of our BAD (Buckley's Austrian Data) research, we decided to ask the temporary residents of Bad Hofgastein what was their favourite invention over the past 20 years and we got some brilliant responses, including dry shampoo, a steam mop, hair straighteners, and Google Home.
