Wearable Tech To Prevent Mosquito Bites


Mosquito bites are not as benign as some people assume. Mosquito-borne diseases such as Malaria can be better managed if we can control these small creatures. A new technology by the The Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and Oxford University could help people prevent mosquito bites. It will alert people to the presence of mosquitoes.

The device can detect different species, so those wearing it will know when to get moving to avoid a dangerous bite. The system can be used to crowdsource data for scientific research. The group behind this project won a $500k grant after winning Google’s Impact challenge. Something to keep an eye on.
