Is it hot in here? You might want to consider checking out the Wi-Fi enabled Aros connected air conditioning unit from GE and Quirky that will learn your preferences over time and cool your room without your input. The product will be out in May, and is part of the two companies’ connected devices partnership. The AC unit will work with the Wink app that operates a connected egg carton, a clock and other gizmos. At $300 for 8,000 BTUs it’s a bit pricier than a dumb system, but that’s how the internet of things works today.
