Whoever Got Funding for This Was Genius

There’s been a lot of money floating around out there, particularly from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to come up with ways to fight Malaria.  A laser mosquito killing device is genius, both because it’s novel, and because it’s quite likely someone got a malaria related grant to be able to play with lasers.   I’ll tell you though, we could really use this in the summer when our Thursday air gun silhouette matches get going full swing.

    That’s awesome. It makes me wonder how much beer/scotch/whatever the drink of choice for laser physicists is was consumed during the initial design phase…

    As a Floridian, more than a little familiar with Mosquitos myself, let me just say that if this works it is the greatest thing since smokeless powder.

    I assume that laser will only fire for an infinitesimal amount of time, so I don’t know if it could be a danger to eyes.
