It’s been more than a little while since we’ve posted an On the Radar update. We’ve been pretty busy around BUILD World Headquarters, but we’re never too buried in work to stay inspired. Here are the latest people, projects, and perspectives that have caught our eyes and piqued our interest.

DESIGNing
The news broke a few months back, but it’s worth another mention as we get more requests for high-tech/high-touch mechanics in their homes. Nest launches a sleek new smoke/carbon dioxide detector: Nest Protect.
