Noria window A/C on Kickstarter

Has anyone taken a look at this exceptionally small window A/C on Kickstarter? https://kickstarter.com/projects/kurt/noria-cool-redefined Every way I can think of to shrink a unit to this size has significant drawbacks.

    I saw it this morning.

    They're comparing it's size to a huge, maybe 18,000 btu/h window unit while the Noria is only 5000 btu/h. It would take almost 4 Norias to equal the window unit they are comparing it to.

    They also have a photo saying they're filling it with refrigerant and the guy appears to be using a nitrogen tank.

    The entire thing looks like a bunch of misleading B.S. It's not that small for a 5000 btu/h unit.
