Laser Beam Mosquito Killer...

Mosquitoes are a nuisance. They are one of the few animals that survive by drinking blood and are also known to spread a variety of diseases. The laser beam mosquito killer puts an end to the pests with the zap of a laser. It’s a new technology that can be used to kill bugs. The laser beam mosquito killer is technically called the Photonic Fence Anti-Mosquito Laser System and the invention was created by Intellectual Ventures Lab. The system operates by identifying mosquitoes and then hunting them down. Once the system targets a mosquito, it zooms in and releases a killer laser beam that destroys the mosquito in one of two ways. The beam either disrupts the mosquito’s DNA or it causes the mosquito to overheat and blow up. The scientists who created the laser beam had a good reason. They were on a quest to eliminate malaria, which is one of the worst public health problems worldwide. In Africa, the disease causes an outrageously high death toll, and it is often transmitted through mosquito bites. Fortunately, the laser device is smart enough to only target mosquitoes. The system can tell the difference between mosquitoes and other insects such as bumblebees and butterflies. The mosquito laser is so smart that it can even figure out if a mosquito is a boy or a girl.
