Weapon of Mosquito Desctruction

May 15th, 2009 9 comments

Scientists around Lowell Wood at the University of Houston developed an acustic guided laser system to kill mosquitos. It tracks the mosquitos wing’s by it’s sound in order to fire a laser onto them.

So far it only worked with tracking one mosquito but it’s still in an early stage. Once it is finished, it will be able killing millions of mosquitos per night.

This sounds really interesting, isn’t it? Their aim is to condemn deseases such as Malaria.
