Blasting Mosquitoes crossing an Invisible Fence with Lasers
You know, there’s just something really cool about having an invisible fence that blasts approaching mosquitoes with lasers. There’s even a “light-em up mode” that uses visible low power lasers to determine wing beat frequency to identify the blood sucking ones. All the bugs that pass the fence can get lit up for a fraction of a second with a green glow. The bad ones end up in a puff of smoke, while the others roam free.
Where was that job when I graduated from engineering in 2003? I thought I had it good in Lego robotics, but this may be one step better.
WARNING: If you don’t like watching bugs end up in smoke, please don’t watch the video.
