Animation: Nest Rush Hour Rewards

The Nest team has been visiting Google HQ this week, and I found this quick video interesting both for the animation/visual storytelling and for the tech it covers. (Don’t worry, I’m not going to become some kind of corporate shill/spokesweasel. I would’ve blogged this at Adobe, too.)

We couldn’t be happier with our Nest thermostat & smoke detectors. Now if I ever get some time, the Micronaxx & I are going to reenact the Office Space printer scene, this time staring our bag of heinous & deposed former smoke detectors. Stay tuned.

  1. When you say “reenact the Office Space printer scene”, it conjures images of smashing thermostats and smoke detectors with baseball bats and what-not. It sounds like fun but please check the contents of the hardware before you start. Many smoke detectors contain americium-241, which is radioactive. You probably do not have the very old type thermostats that contain mercury but it never hurts to check.

    Thank you for many interesting, entertaining and sometimes thought provoking moments on this and your previous blog. JW
