Great to see that great technological minds can yield additional products - take Tony Fadell, he was the Chief of the iPod division at Apple Computers. His new company, Nest has premiered it's first product - a 'Learning' Thermostat.
Apart from a very contemporary looking wall mounted device - this mini-computer promises to not only make controlling the temperatures in our homes easier to manage, but to save us energy dollars as well!
As the company states on their web site "Nest learns from your temperature adjustments, programs itself to keep you comfortable, and guides you to energy savings.
You can control the thermostat from anywhere using a smartphone, tablet or laptop, and Nest never stops learning, even as your life and the seasons change."
Check out the video below for a better idea of how the Nest works. Nest has a retail price of $249. per unit and pre-orders are being accepted on the Nest web site as well as at select Best Buy stores and on BestBuy.com.
