Laser System Designed To Track, Kill Mosquitoes.

The Wired (2/11, Zetter) “Epicenter” blog reports on “a ‘Death Star’ laser gun” featured at this year’s Technology, Entertainment and Design conference that is “designed to track and kill mosquitoes in flight.” Intellectual Ventures Laboratory, which developed the device, is “currently examining how cost effective it would be to deploy the device in places like Africa.”

Editor’s Note:  Sounds like overkill — but it’s a nifty idea!
