Quirky and GE developed a smart air conditioner that won’t look ugly in your window

A smart and oddly svelte air conditioner is the product of an unlikely partnership between Quirky, the maker of bendy power strips and balance boards, and GE. The Aros air conditioner is an 8,000 BTU window unit that you can control via the buttons on its front, or through Quirkys Wink mobile app. Its surprising that its taken so long for a product like this to exist, but a partnership with GE makes sense given the companys vast experience with AC units. Aros is slightly more expensive than similar air conditions at $300 and, unless you live in a shoebox, youll need multiple units to cool your home. Compared to the classic yet ugly air conditioners we know and love to hate, Aros is a sight for sore eyes, but well have to wait and see if its function can match its form.
