Californian start-up Nest Labs launched world’s first learning thermostat Nest. It looks very attractive and uses the same approach for user interaction as iPod (company’s founders – two ex-Apple employees from the iPod team). The thermostat is extremely simple in installation and easy in use.

Sure you have ability to adjust it manually.

Universal remote control for football fans

Football TV Remote Control

This universal remote control should be very attractive for all football fans not just because it’s made as a football ball. But also because it’s soft to do not break your TV and durable to do not break itself in case you throw it if your team plays not good.

The football remote control can control not only TVs but other AV devices as well. It has an effective range up to 7 meters and costs about €20.

Impressive home theater design

Home Theater

Probably the most impressive home theater I’ve seen in my life is built in Palm Beach, Florida. It includes an Entrance Area/Ticketing Booth, the Pirate Tavern/Lobby, where you can take a shot of rum between shows and the unique screening room with twelve sits which looks like a deck of a Pirate ship.

As I already mentioned that project is under construction. So, no any “live” pictures are available yet. Hope the home theater will have the same amazing look in reality as on rendered images.

Terminator theme for home theater

VIA EPIA-P830 Pico-ITX board

It’s not enough for home theater to include high-end equipment and be integrated with home automation system. It also should have some exceeded design. Like Terminator themed one, for example. It was built in the 14’ x 21’ bare room. All design elements were inspired by the second movie: T2 – Judgement Day. Looks awesome, doesn’t it? See the list of equipments after break.
