A smoking hot detector

Here is a great improvement on an object that hasn’t evolved since it was created: the smoke detector. Here are some great improvements made by the Nest’s creator:
– Waving to the detector to tell it that it is a false alarm: a gesture people are already doing in false alarm contexts to clear the smoke; zero learning curve and way less effort to shut it up.
– Notification via mobile: who wouldn’t like to get notified when there’s a fire at their home!

Of course, this works best if you have one in each room of your house, and it is not cheap!
