Apparently I wasn't the only one who thought the home thermostat was unappealing to the eye. Thankfully, the former Apple senior VP Tony Fadell thought so too, and then there was Nest! Not only is it chic as hell, beautiful as hell, and very much for the 21st century... but naturally, it's smart as hell too!
The Nest has a built-in sensor that knows when you are home. It senses patterns in your schedule and adapts to your routine. A leaf shows up when you are conserving energy; turning the heat down one degree can save up to 5 percent of your energy costs. And you can control it from anywhere in the world with your phone or tablet. -Tony Fadell on Elle Decor
