New Laser Zaps Mosquitoes in SlowMotion
posted May 23 2010 16:58.04

Intellectual Ventures made a project to help fight malaria. They decided to build a laser that can recognize the female mosquitoes (the ones that carry malaria) and zap them in mid-air. It is a rather different approach on pest control but if it works and helps then is welcomed.

    • There is no static beam, and yes they can easily aim them in air and even decide which one is female or male or just flies or bees. Go their site where the project malaria is and watch the TED video to see it in action.

    • How in the world can they aim a flying mosq???? And how in the world, do they expect this mosquito to go through this beam? I need to see this in operation!
