Nest: The Learning Thermostat That Programs Itself

It's the sexiest little thermostat to ever hit the market. Meet Nest, available mid-November. It works a little (well, a LOT) differently than a regular thermostat. Curious? See a video below:

After the initial installation (which you can do yourself), Nest will ask you a few questions about your heating/cooling behaviors. After one week in your home, Nest has learned your individual preferences and, going forward, will program your energy use automatically to optimize home energy savings. If you make changes to the settings, not a problem, Nest will adapt. If you forget to change its settings while away you can access Nest remotely from your iPad or iPhone. It's smart, it's sleek and it claims it will save you upwards of $500 within the first three years of use (results based on an average annual energy bill of $2,200).

Who wouldn't want to replace their eyesore of a thermostat for the sleek, modern, new Nest? However, as sleek and cool as it is, it does come with a hefty price tag of $250.
