Apple Store offers Nest Thermostat

The Nest Thermostat looks like it is made by Apple. And this is actually almost true. Tony Fadell, hardware designer of the iPod is behind the Nest.

The Nest Thermostat is the brainchild of Tony Fadell, the hardware designer of the Apple iPod. Fadell left Apple in 2009 and after a break he started a company called Nest Labs to make the most easy to use Thermostat that also saves energy. The Nest Thermostat looks first of all very sexy and it is smart too. Nest learns from your habits and input over time. It is also connected via Wi-Fi to your iPhone for remote control.

Sensors of the Nest Thermostat even know when you've left the house. Nest also reads weather reports via its Wi-Fi interface and knows how the weather is where your house is. If you walk up to Nest it automatically turns on the round display. 

The Nest is now also selling in Apple Store, which at the moment is down for maintenance. 9to5Mac has though already spotted the Nest in the store, before it went down. It is already since a while on sale and for instance has special displays in Lowe's hardware stores.
