Nest Thermostat by Tony Fadell
The Nest thermostat is not only sexy it also has a brain. This ingenious piece of industrial design learns your heating and cooling habits, adapts and remembers your daily routine. It can even be controlled via Wi-Fi on your iPhone, iPad and desktop computer. If this sounds rather Apple-esk well you're right, well almost right. It's the brainchild of former Head of Apple's iPod and iPhone division, Tony Fadell. Considered by many to be the 'father of the iPod', Fadell conceived the idea for the Nest in 2009 and resigned from Apple in early 2010, to concentrate his efforts into making it a reality.
