Invented by Garthen Leslie, a former Department of Energy executive, and built by Quirky in partnership with GE, one of the most trusted brand names in home appliances, Aros is a smart window air conditioner that learns your habits to save you money. It learns from your budget, location, schedule, and usage to automatically maintain the perfect temperature for your home.

Keep track on your energy costs
Aros keeps a constant eye on how much you’ve spent on cooling each month and offers suggested settings based on your budget and the upcoming weather report so you can save on energy costs.
Monitor & program wherever and whenever you want
Aros learns from your patterns to cool when you need it, not when you don’t. It predicts the temperatures you like when you wake up, lounge on weekends, leave for work, or return home.
Walk in to a cool apartment—always
Aros responds to your smartphone's GPS settings (in a non-creepy way) to turn off when you leave. When you get back, the temperature will be just right. You'll never come home to nasty, stuffy summer heat again.
If you're one of those peeps that leaves the air conditioner on while you’re at work. Or when you step out to run errands. Or would like to turn it on before you get home from running errands. You should be here. Reserve your spot!
Ben Kaufman—Breaker, Maker, Founder and CEO of Quirky—makes invention accessible. At 18, he founded his first company, mophie, and learned just how difficult it is to bring one single product to market. In 2009, Ben launched Quirky to break down the barriers to invention and allow creative people all over the world to invent together. He's helped hundreds of everyday inventors bring their product ideas to life and forged partnerships with the world’s largest retailers to sell those products. Today, Ben and Quirky continue to redefine the way the world thinks about product development and invention.
At Quirky, products are invented by real people, like you. Quirky makes invention accessible by bringing real people’s product ideas to life. To take ideas from pipe dream to consumer product, an in-house team of designers and engineers collaborate with Quirky’s online community on nearly all aspects of development. Anyone can make their mark by submitting a problem-solving idea or weighing in on others'. And when a product is sold, Quirky shares its revenue with every community member that had an impact. Founded by Ben Kaufman in 2009, Quirky’s products can be found at The Home Depot, Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Amazon.com, and of course—Quirky.com.
