Why hasn't anyone built the anti-mosquito laser defense system yet? Answered
According to what I have been reading the designers of this, found the parts on ebay for less than $50 making me want to scream"Tony Stark built this in a cave! From a box of scraps!" I know the main issue is the software (which is based off of a missile defense system.) however all the parts are here
LED/perimeter detector - Check have seen an instructible on this before
Laser capable of shooting down mosquito- Check. we had a hand held laser pointer that some guy bought in the army that could cause a beret to smoke . But It cost a bit more than $50 I believe.
Turret for Laser- Check, this is easy enough of a build.
Software to use laser on - questionable. It was designed by a guy who made missile defense systems and the star wars system, but there is probably someone that smart on here
Other viable replacements like a motion detector/heat detector etc- Check, though its tunability to killing mosquitos is questionable.
Summer is coming soon and this could be the coolest light show ever.
