A Philly hardware firm built a ‘smart’ air conditioner you’ll actually wanna use

Summer savior! (OK, well, you're gonna have to wait till next summer.)

It’s no secret that window units suck.

That’s why we were excited to see Likuma Labs’ Kickstarter for Noria, a smart-home answer to the clunky air-conditioning units that everyone uses. It’s smaller and easier to install, plus you can control it from your smartphone, the team says. They’re trying to raise $250,000.

Likuma, the NextFab-based product firm that designed prototypes for Biomeme and Nucleus, has been working on the project for more than two years, said cofounder Kurt Swanson.

Pre-order it for $295 (it will retail for $395). Sadly, they won’t be ready till next summer.

Support by June 3

The product got featured in the Inquirer today.

Watch Noria in action below, plus see the Likuma team at work at NextFab.
