BMW i8

Favorited by Tony Fadell 
iPod Designer, Founder of Nest Labs

Tony Fadell, development chief for the iPod and iPhone, left Apple in 2008 to build beautiful new devices on his own. First up: The Nest Learning Thermostat

The $250 Nest, which has the look and feel of a round iPhone, studies your habits and adjusts the temperature to save energy. Somehow, Fadell made the lowly thermostat cool. What does Tony Fadell think is cool? The $136,000 BMW i8, a plug-in hybrid sports car that gets almost 100 miles per gallon. 

“An amazing concept car made it to production without modification -- which is rare,” Fadell says. “Bold design plus bold vehicle technology.” Vroom.
