As long as your window air conditioner does its job and keeps your place cool, that's pretty much all that matters—until you see the Noria. The diminutive air conditioner is 18.25-inches wide and just under 6-inches tall, but cools a room as effectively as many larger units, and it looks so much better. It's programmable, includes an iPhone app for remote control, works with single- and double-hung window frames, and is surprisingly easy to install. It's a Kickstarter that's already met its minimum pledge goal with a month left to go, which means you won't have one in time for this summer's heat. But by next summer you'll good to go—and pretty chill.
