Thermostats don't just control heating. They're getting pretty damn hot themselves. (Really, they are.)
Netatmo has joined forces with designer Philippe Starck to create a thermostat that you'll actually want to show off to friends.
Its minimal white design can be jazzed up with interchangeable coloured plastic frames to match your decor, and its simplicity also wins us over.
Clever little box
Its easy-to-read e-ink display shows you the current and target temperature, which can be changed with a simple click on the top and bottom of the front frame. No buttons, no mess.
There's also a companion iOS and Android app to let you make temperature adjustments wirelessly, as well as schedule times and check the energy usage.
The app can also learn when you're away or what temperatures you prefer at certain times of the day.
It'll set you back US$240 (RM769). Cross our fingers that it'll be available in Malaysia too.[Netatmo vis Gizmodo]
