Electronics manufacturers and engineers in Japan can’t come up with a design like this for an air conditioner?

With manufacturing demand dropping and Japan importing less every year, it really amazes me that Japan’s much vaunted electronics and appliance manufacturers couldn’t come up with an air conditioning unit like the Noria? You would think after 70 years of major electronics manufacturing, Japanese electric appliance engineers could come up with something as unique as this small Noria air conditioner that is remarkably efficient and easy to install.

Window air conditioners have been around for over 60 years, providing much needed relief in the hot summer months. But it has always come at a cost of a terrible user experience. Window air conditioners have always been big, ugly, loud, and difficult to install – until now. The Noria unit is a 5,000 BTU/hour window air conditioner accommodating windows with opening widths from 21 inches and up. It is appropriate for rooms up to 160 square feet. Noria will be available in the Spring of 2017.
