This cool invention designed for beating the heat is becoming a hot commodity.
By shedding bulk, weight, and the typical boxy, industrial look, the Noria promises to revolutionize the entire way people think about window-mounted air conditioners.
Only six inches tall and weighing 30 pounds, it’s a snap to install –and you can do it by yourself.
Smaller than a suitcase, it’s also easy to move from room to room, fits under the bed for storage in the winter, and leaves plenty of room to view out your windows.
The team behind it launched a crowdfunding campaign Saturday to raise $250,000 to bring their compact air conditioner to market — and collected more than $1.5 million in just the first three days.
Early supporters can buy the Noria for $295, and expect to start shipping in April, 2017 – just in time for next summer.
“Now that it’s warming up, people are still dealing with their big, boxy air conditioner,” Kurt Swanson, one of the company founders told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “We’re hoping that will be the impetus for people to say: ‘OK, this is the last year I use this stupid thing! I want to upgrade next year.’”
