The Noria window air conditioner unit, which has—with just under a month to go—already nearly doubled its $250,000 goal on Kickstarter, has many nice features. But the biggest one, the one that truly sets it apart from all other window air conditioners, is that it does not look like a personal computer from 1997. There are other good things about it as well—it's small, you can control it with your smart phone, etc. But that's the main one, and, we're pretty sure, the thing that has allowed it to raise $439,691 and counting.
