RaspberryPi Assisted ‘Anti-Mosquito Laser Turret’ Has Been Developed

Russian computer scientist named Ildar Rakhmatulin produced a mosquito laser using Raspberry Pi and laser. An expert working on brain-computer interfaces at Russia’s South Ural State University claims that with his invention, he neutralized two mosquitoes per second.

” Raspberry Pi to kill mosquitoes laser ” online as a non-peer reviewed preprint in January. In it, he lays out a plan to snipe mosquitoes out of the air using a Raspberry Pi equipped with a Pi camera, a galvanometer that detects electrical currents, and a commercially-available laser pointer that’s 450 nanometers and one wavelength—powerful enough to kill a mosquito and blind someone looking directly at it, but not enough to burn skin.
