Nest has already revamped the conventional thermostat by creating a smarter, sleeker device that both reduces energy consumption and looks pretty hanging on the wall. Now, the Palo Alto, California-based company is driving a makeover of the the smoke detector. The revamped device is capable of recognizing varying gradients of alarms, communicate with users and sync with mobile devices. It is a great story of innovation and creativity. It inspires you to wonder about how we might be able to rethink every-day items Cannon Designers and our clients are using each day. The video showcases Nest’s new project.
