Nest has done it again!

Nest has launched a smoke alarm that
  1. Talks to you about the impending danger and the location of the danger, rather than just beeping (Intelligent feedback)
  2. Stays connected to you via your phone and informs you when the system is low on battery or if the alarm goes off (Continuous feedback)
  3. Is gesture controlled and recognizes hand waves, eliminating the need to swing a towel (Takes in user input)
  4. Provides light at night (Nice to have; going with their theme of creating a superior "home experience")
  5. Coupled with the Nest thermostat, it can sense carbon monoxide poisoning and even shut down the furnace.
