East Coasters may have seen advertisements for air conditioners popping up in their daily weather reports recently, thanks to a new partnership between Quirky (a New York-based company that helps inventors flush out and develop ideas) and weather service Poncho.

GE and Quirky co-developed the mobile app-controlled Aros air conditioner that uses information like location, billing budgets and schedules to set customized indoor temperatures. The so-called smart home device is $300.
