According to the TEC Foundation:
"The TECnology Hall of Fame was created in 2004 to spotlight important innovations from the long and rich history of the pro audio industry. Each year, inductees are selected by a committee of more than 50 industry leaders, engineers, producers, designers, educators, journalists and historians, with the only "rule" being that any selection must be at least 10 years old."
Auto-Tune is the "youngest" of the 2010 inductees. You can read more about all of this year's inductees below...
