  • Philips FreeStreet – a lighting system that eliminates traditional street light poles, instead connecting a string of LEDs along narrow cables which are virtually invisible during the day.
  • The Nest Learning Thermostat – a thermostat that programs itself by learning about you, your lifestyle and home environment to develop a customized and efficient temperature schedule.
