The Long Island Technology Hall of Fame seeks to "recognize, honor and preserve the contributions, exceptional accomplishments, and dedication of historical figures or current leaders in science or technology who have had, or are having, an impact on Long Island." 

Last year's inductees  were Leo A. Guthart, Nikola Tesla, Boris Metlitsky and Nicholas P. Samios.
