    Hal 9000 Nest Thermostat

    Hello! First time posting here, but been a member for a while, admiring from afar. Had a bit of spare time during the current craziness, so I watched 2001: A Space Odyssey and decided to try and make a HAL 9000 control panel to surround my Nest Thermostat. I've seen other people do it, and...
