Default Most Innovative Revolver?

What modern revolver strikes you as the most innovative, most exciting, and most game changing?

I've narrowed it down to three that I think have really cool innovations: The Ruger LCR, Taurus Judge, and Ruger SP101 .327 Magnum. My reasoning is here:
Three Innovative Revolvers for 21st Century Shooters

Did I leave any really significant revolvers out? What's on your list?

Isn't there a .357 called the Rhino?

That is a wild looking contraption. It supposed to be imported by Chiappa. It fires from the bottom chamber.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

While it's not a 21st Century revolver, it interchangeable "barrel under tension" system is definitely an innovative design.

The Medusa Model 47 chambers, fires, and extracts 25 different cartridges in the .38/9mm/.357 ammunition range.

Mr. Dardicks Automatic Revolver. Fired a triangular cross section plastic cartridge (the tround), could switch from .22 to .38 by changing only the barrel. They also experimented with one that used a SALVO cartridge- four shots at once.

The MBA Gyrojet Rocket pistol. Each cartridge was a .45 caliber solid fuel rocket. Recoil of a .22, power of a 45, accuracy of a thrown chair. Ammo was $6 a bang in 1965. Today? Don't ask!

I bet firing from the bottom of the cylinder really helps manage recoil. You learn something new everyday.
