Alex Angel January 10, 2020 03:16 PM Years ago Intellectual Ventures put out a TED talk with a proof of concept of this idea with a built-in laser that would melt the wings of female mosquitos in mid-air to render them flightless. I remember being very disappointed when I discovered they just wanted to patent & license out the idea rather than develop it themselves. Happy to see SOMEONE finally is developing this! guzmanchinky January 10, 2020 03:16 PM Oh man that sounds fun. Now they need some kind of gun so I can shoot the little buggers! Trylon January 10, 2020 03:28 PM @paul314, read the article before trying to be snarky. "To help them see where the insect is, the device laser-projects a box around it, whenever it stops moving." A laser that's not moving won't attract a cat's attention. ChairmanLMAO January 11, 2020 10:28 AM or you could take the power filters out and fry those wily bastages on the fly!! f8lee January 11, 2020 02:03 PM The name sounds suspiciously like"bazinga!" - the term that jokester Sheldon Cooper (on Big Bang Theory) likes to use... alexD January 12, 2020 07:55 PM well... i'm not too paranoid.. yet.... wife though, would love this.... i'd hate the price though.... windykites January 13, 2020 02:45 AM Obviously designed by a couple of swats! (lol) I would call the device Viva ZAPata. It is a very expensive way to indicate mozzies. How about a laser pistol? Some blue lasers are powerful enough. martinwinlow January 13, 2020 05:24 AM Please let me know when the 'detect and destroy' version is in the shops, especially if it can deal with flies, too. juan morales January 13, 2020 06:59 AM Fantastic device. Waiting for the cockroach version!
