Next up in our countdown of the Hottest 100 gadgets on the planet is the Nest Thermostat
This is no ordinary thermostat. It was designed by the people who worked on the iPod, which may explain its technological wizardry. It learns how best to heat your house by monitoring your activities and predicting what temperature you’d like when. Give it a week, and the makers claim it’ll have your daily routine down pat.
It’s energy efficient, and has Wi-Fi built in, so you can switch it off from anywhere in the world via an app, so you won’t rack up a huge bill for forgetting. Or you can just annoy whoever’s at home. Though we’re sure you wouldn’t do that.
