Star Wars Mosquito Laser Defense System

Several years ago a spoof on shooting down Mosquito's with lasers came out... this thing is hilarious (tired of annoying blood spots on walls...) Wink



But now a company has come out with a real mosquito laser system that actually works. Mosquito's wings are very fragile, so even a relatively small hot burst of laser light vaporizes them and down goes the mosquito. The only problem I can anticipate is if the mosquito is right in front of your eye and you get a hot laser in the eye, probably not good. But at least this is a good proof of concept system. And very entertaining. I suspect that this thing would be a lot more fun than a bug zapper, and those are pretty fun.

Here are the actual films of mosquito's getting zapped (PETA beware).

@rosborne979,
Taking too long to load. But the Star Wars spoof is hilarious.

I think zapping mosquitos with a laser is a great idea. Besides, we're gonna need something to replace all the poor bats which are dying from white-nose mold syndrome.
