Best in show - Nest Thermostat by Bould Design and Nest Labs

The Nest Learning Thermostat is a revolution in home energy management. After installation, you adjust the temperature as needed. Adjusting the temperature is as simple as turning the dial. The circular color display tracks your adjustment degree by degree as the tactile feedback completes the experience. Over a short time, the thermostats sensors and algorithms automatically figure out your patterns, schedules and preferences and then determine the best way to conserve energy while keeping you comfortable.
