50 Companies That May Be the Next Start-Up Unicorns @ The New York Times.

It used to be a rare thing when start-ups were valued at $1 billion or more by their investors. Now it’s become so common that there are at least 131 start-ups boasting such valuations and a term — “unicorns” — to refer to the companies.

On the NYTimes list of 50 the following are hardware companies: 3DRobotics & Rethink Robotics.
