If you’re in a warmer climate at the moment, we’d like to invite you to take a look at your air conditioner. If you’re like most people, it’s one of those window-mounted boxes, utilitarian in its design. Utilitarian is just a tactful way to say ‘ugly’, but hey, you have to stay cool, right? Well, the Noria Air Conditioner begs to differ. At just 6 inches tall, the unit is designed from the ground up to look good in your window. It blows cool air upwards, creating a convective cycle in your room that prevents hot or cold areas. At 5,000BTU/h, it’s powerful enough to cool a 10’x16′ room, or two Noria units can cool a room up to 330 sq ft. And like many appliances these days, it can connect to your smartphone and allow remote operation of multiple units simultaneously. Early Bird pricing is $249, and with 43 days to go and more than half-funded, we expect the company to be able to meet its goal. If it does, you’ll then have to wait until March 2017 to get your hands on yours.
