Is Nest the start of a new revolution?

Call it a good marketing campaign, call it innovation – during this current news cycle, there’s been a lot of buzz about a new home thermostat from Nest Laboratories, called the Nest Learning Thermostat.

The brains behind Nest is a team led by Tony Fadell, a former Apple engineer that helped create the first 18 generations of the iPod, and Matt Rogers, who was involved in the iPod’s software development.

While this is not a product review, the concept behind Nest is quite cool as you can see by this video. Which leads us to wonder, what other applications can be made from the folks that first brought us the iPod, iPhone and other similar, innovative communication technologies and applications?

The tagline for Nest seems to capture where we think this company, and the others that are sure to follow, might be headed: Technology should be about more than newest, loudest, prettiest. It should make a difference.

We’re intrigued to watch what every day items Nest will tackle going forward.
