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
