In this episode we open up the Nespresso VirtuoLine single-serve coffeemaker. This is the latest innovation from Nespresso, which features new bar code technology that tells the coffeemaker how quick to brew the coffee and at what temperature, depending on the flavor chosen. We open it up in this episode and give you a look at the appliance.

Here are the Nespresso VertuoLine features:

  • Fully automatic machine uses a revolutionary new brewing technology for traditional Italian espresso beverages and classic American coffee.
  • Advanced, ultra-quiet Centrifusion technology relies on centrifugal force to gently and precisely brew coffee and espresso -- both topped with a natural amber crema for the deepest, most complex flavor and richest aroma.
  • Computerized scanning system reads the bar code on your Nespresso VertuoLine capsule, ensuring precision blend-specific brewing for your desired beverage.
  • Works exclusively with Nespresso's new premium VertuoLine capsules (12 are included -- eight coffee and four espresso).
  • Brews one or two cups of coffee (7.77 oz.) or espresso (1.35 oz.), all with one-touch convenience.
  • Machine heats up quickly, reaching optimal brewing temperatures in 15-20 seconds.
  • Adjustable tray accommodates cups of various sizes (from small cups to travel mugs).
  • Used capsules are automatically ejected and collected in a built-in container.
  • Energy-saving function turns the machine off automatically after 9 minutes of inactivity.
  • Descaling alert lets you know when it's time to descale your machine.

In this episode we open up the Nest Protect. Nest Protect is a smoke & carbon monoxide detector from the makers of the Nest Smart Thermostat. It will let you know in plain English that there is a problem in the home, and will also tell you which room it's in. False alarms are easily silenced with a wave. If you have multiple Protect units in your home, they will talk to each other, and they'll even use motion sensor data to alert the Nest Thermostat that there is someone home, so that it knows to keep the temperature to where you like it to be.

We will follow-up with a setup video, and an installation video of the Nest Protect as well, following this unboxing!

In this episode we open up the Nest Learning Thermostat. If you are unfamiliar, check out our video demo of Nest. Nest aims to manage the heating and cooling in your house by learning your usage patterns alongside built-in motion sensors that are used to tell when you are and aren't home. You can control Nest directly from the unit, as well as from anywhere that you have an Internet connection through the browser. It also has smartphone apps that allow you to control it directly from your mobile device. The more you interact with Nest, the more it learns about your preferences, and it will continually tune itself to your preferences and schedule. Nest is currently backordered by about two months from the company, but you can pick up Nest on Amazon.

We know how much everyone loved our SLEEPTRACKER Watch review, so we made sure that when we heard about the Axbo SLEEPPHASE Alarm Clock, we got our hands on it. The SLEEPPHASE Alarm Clock works in conjunction with wireless bracelets which can be worn by two people, with the aim of waking you when you are in your lightest phase of sleep. The end result is that you wake up feeling refreshed instead of tired. We unbox the SLEEPPHASE Alarm Clock in this episode of Unboxing Live!
