evaporative coolers have been around for forever

if you google bong coolers, using a big bit of pipe with a sprinkler head in the top and a fan blowing air up through it has been around for at least 20 years in pc water cooling

doesen't seam to be anything new?

2 main differences, firstly this solution/project deliveries 'conditioned air' where both heat and moisture have been adjusted and secondly it high efficiency while doing that task.

If anyone wants to see a bong cooler project can watch this

  or if you want to escape the over the top presentation

The person behind the original video has now posted a new edition that has been scaled up somewhat.

I caught this a couple of days ago after waiting all that time.

Unfortunately he admits it's not as revolutionary as he'd hoped, but can be done DIY and cheaper than a conventional system

At least he did not run to Indiegogo with a bunch of computer-generated videos to raise vast sums of money because his idea was guaranteed to change the world......
