The search for new methods to eliminate the mosquito infestation in his house led him to invent this crazy machine
As if it were the Death Star, a YouTuber has been designing a laser beam capable of killing the mosquitoes that lurk in your home at night. Although it also works for any type of flying insect. Faced with traditional remedies that have not worked for him, he has opted for others that are much more dangerous but also more interesting to develop: a death ray.
A laser beam to kill mosquitoes
The YouTuber Allen Pal, quite well known in the Anglo-Saxon sphere, had a very serious mosquito problem in his house. It could be considered that it was a complete plague. Thus, he gathered courage and patience and began to investigate how could destroy them through laser weapons. The result has been fantastic, as we will see, but before that he had to go through a series of vicissitudes that made achieving success with his prototype problematic.
In the first instance it was based on a video of a TED talk with the aim of imitating it. In this, a scientist claimed that was able to eliminate mosquitoes with a mechanical learning application that identified and eliminated them. However, when Allen attempted to teach his AI, it mistook mosquitoes for airplanes, resembling China’s secret weapon, but making it unworkable. Therefore, he had to opt for a much more prosaic solution, modifying a racket to create a series of lasers that would kill mosquitoes.
After going through some problems in development, he decided to enlist the help of some friends experts in this type of technologies and finally they were able to move it forward by perfecting it to solve all the problems it had. Thus, its aesthetic section continued to remind us of a racket, but the prototype had been perfected to the point that they dispensed with them to create a racket themselves. basis that would allow its use without problems when reflecting lasers in mirrors.
At the end of the video you can see how mosquitoes fall into their trap. The laser appears to work effectively, burning and removing them simple. Although at first it is a little difficult find the technique, later they dominate it until quite a few fall into its traps. This is an ineffective tactic, since everything indicates that it has been quite expensive. But it is still a very fun bet to disseminate the science and how laser rays work in today’s world. Something that we have been able to test first-hand thanks to laser engravers that show that it is an increasingly rising technology.
- Allen Pan is a YouTuber who had a problem with mosquitoes at home.
- In a humorous way, he decides to carry out a very fun project: a laser weapon against mosquitoes.
- He tried to create an autonomous weapon with AI, but he mistook mosquitoes for airplanes.
- He thought it wasn’t going to work, but after several concepts, he sought support from two friends and they developed a prototype that seemed to solve some problems.
- The end result is a kind of laser racket that burns everything that passes through it.
- In the test you can see how the mission is successful and the mosquitoes are eliminated by Allen and his friends.
