Nest Is Just the Beginning of Smart Home Tech

Dec 7, 2012
These days, it seems like everyone is innovating for the future. From eco-friendly prefab housing to high-tech city bridges, companies and cities are putting unique and interesting spins on what they believe will change our future. But, think about this for a second: Have you ever thought long and hard about what your thermostat will look like in 10 or 15 years? Probably not. Turns out that the thermostat, for better or for worse, hasn’t really changed its form or function in the last few decades, aside from a digital interface and more sophisticated temperature-sensing technology. It seems as though there wasn’t much to say about the device until the introduction of the Nest: A high-tech smart thermostat that broke the mold for its minimalist design and mobile, sustainable programming options. “Before Nest, people didn’t care about their thermostat,” says Matt Rogers, co-founder and VP of engineering at Nest. “We’ve really awoken that frustration by bringing great design, great technology and a great experience to the space.”
