Photonic Fence Blasts Mosquitos with Lasers
While a laser-guided mosquito defense system obviously sounds awesome, the GPU contributes a particularly incredible function to IV's Photonic Fence. The mosquito defense system not only distinguishes between different types of insects so that it can determine which pests to blast, but it also identifies the mosquitoes that carry malaria. Once the GPU recognizes a carrier, the pest defense, uh, fence cripples the vermin by blasting off its wings.
Malaria poses the most significant risk to human life in developing nations, particularly in Africa, where the disease afflicts hundreds of millions of people every year. But, the U.S. isn't exactly immune to mosquito-borne diseases. Various areas just endured a particularly miserable mosquito season, complete with Dengue fever, so hopefully some tech heavy-hitters (Gates, paging Mr. Gates) are in attendance this week in San Jose.
