Why not keep you and your dire wolves at the right temperature with a temperature gauge that learns your heating habits without making you press that damn SET button on your thermostat. Does that button even work?
Instead of those damn up and down buttons, the Nest employs a dial to adjust your home’s temperature. The unit displays the current temperature and glows red if the heater is enabled and blue if the A/C is keeping you from sticking to your chair. After a week of spinning the household-temperature dial, the Nest actually learns your schedule and begins to set the temperature on its own.
The Wi-Fi enabled device is controllable from your computer or smartphone and if you’re concerned about the Earth or how much money you’re spending a month on heating your home, the device displays a leaf when your actually saving energy. The $US249 Nest should be available in November. [Nest Labs]
