The big reveal: Aros!

Posted ago by Calla

Aros

Today we introduced Aros—Quirky + GE’s revolutionary smart air conditioner—to the world. A product this cool doesn’t come around every day, so we rolled out the red carpet when Aros inventor Garthen Leslie stopped by Quirky HQ for a surprise sneak peek of his app-enabled A/C.

Get an insider’s look at Garthen’s inspiration and all the hard work that our team put into making Aros a reality:

Since there is nothing new here, what makes this such a big deal? It looks nice and sleek but the technology already exists. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.samsung.rac

I hope this doesn't break any rules. I'd like to suggest an addition to Aros—or rather an alternative using similar technology. Please see "Alto: Intel for your A/C." Alto is a universal, climate-sensing, app-enabled remote control for your existing air conditioner. https://www.quirky.com/invent/1069713 ––– Aros is brilliant and beautiful, by the way. Congratulations to everyone who influenced its progress.
