Hottest and coolest being used figuratively, of course. The GLAS by Microsoft and Johnson Controls redefines what home appliances must look like, along with what they’re capable of. Made to look as pretty as a picture, the GLAS features a translucent touch-screen display that delights the heart with the way it showcases your wall behind it. Pair that with Microsoft’s minimal UI running on the new Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Core and you have a product that performs as great as it looks.
The GLAS comes with Microsoft’s virtual assistant Cortana, allowing you to interact with it using your voice as well as through your other Microsoft products. It comes with sensors that know when you’re in the room and when you’re not, working seamlessly to adjust air temperature and quality too so that it provides the optimal experience while saving on energy… but with a thermostat so beautiful, I doubt I’d ever leave the room!
