The products sense when people enter and leave a room, adjusting their cooling accordingly. 

Richard Morgan, executive creative director at 303Lowe, revealed that Taylor's competitive spirit lives on. "When we showed him the ‘total temperature control’ concept, he took it upon himself to master the tricks," Morgan said. "With a bit of practice, he nailed it."
