Dehumidifiers and evaporative air coolers don't draw too much but dehumidifiers seem to warm the room (I have one). Perhaps one could be re-designed/engineered to dissipate the heat energy outside.
A little too complicated and expensive? Probably.
A net reduction in energy consumption yielding results comparable to air con? No idea. Maybe a little.

The problem is, once you get over 100-110 degrees, those swamp coolers don't really make much of a dent. We'll see just how wonderful this 'new' technology is.
You can make your own A/C with a large bucket of water, some copper tubing, and a strong fan.
