If even the thought of a mosquito starts to make you kind of itchy, than this idea for the next big thing might be for you.
The Kite Patch is a sticker that makes you invisible to mosquitoes. And while that might come in handy at your next backyard barbecue or hiking trip, the real beauty lies in what that means for stopping illnesses that are spread by the bite of a mosquito, like the West Nile virus and malaria. It works by “disrupting the mosquito’s carbon dioxide neurons” which essentially means that it messes up the insect’s navigation system. It’s also a non-toxic way to avoid getting bitten.
All you’ve got to do is place the patch on your clothing, and it works for up to 48 hours. So what do you think? Are you ready to patch it up to protect yourself from the bite of a mosquito? Vote in the poll and tell us what you think.
