The air conditioner unit is one of the least-evolving categories of technology: usually loud, energy inefficient, and typically unattractive, yet they are a necessary evil in the late Spring and throughout the Summer, especially in New York.
Enter, the Quirky and GE air conditioner, called the Aros, an 8,000 BTU smart air conditioner. It’s $300 and is available for pre-order at Amazon, with shipping starting this May.
Besides being the type of AC unit that can cool an 850 square foot space, the Aros also has touch controls, an intake system that prevents the suction of air that already has been cooled, and finally, a Quirky Wink mobile app for iOS and Android, that allows you to turn the Aros on and off based on location, as well as the tracking of energy prices in real-time.
And honestly, we’re very optimistic and can’t wait to try it out.
