Mosquito shot down by lazers


I’m fortunate enough to live in a part of the world where malaria is not a big problem, but I still hate mosquitos.  That’s why I desperately want one of these – it’s like a anti-aircraft canon that detects a mosquito by its wing beat frequency and then shoots them out of the air with a laser..  That’s just fantastic.
Check out the Intellectual Ventures web site for fantastic HD video of mosquitos being shot out of the air in slow motion.  The end motion gif above has frames taken from the end of the third video in that link.
