Well that Jetson's future is here.
The Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with voice control is coming at the end of October for a $349.
Now Honeywell has already had a Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat before and it connects to a very popular iOS and Android app that allows you to adjust the temperature.
Now, it's got voice control.

So right now, you could say make it warmer, make it a lot warmer, make it colder, make it a lot colder, 1 degree, 4 degrees and you have to say, "Hello thermostat." Like everything in your home, maybe you'll start having conversations with it.
