LG has created a new air conditioner that cools the air and also drives away mosquitoes. The ‘Anti-Mosquito’ device utilizes ultrasonic wave technology to repel them and in tests, has been shown to deter on average 64% of malaria-transmitting female Anopheles mosquitoes within 24 hours and 82% overall.
Jun-hwa Jeong, General Manager of Air Conditioning and Energy Solutions at LG, said:
In Nigeria, as well as in a number of other African countries, malaria continues to be a prevalent threat. LG takes great pride in tailoring products and technologies to the specific needs of consumers. By matching technologies directly to these region-specific challenges, we can create real solutions that will help bring about profound and meaningful changes to consumers. The Anti-Mosquito air conditioner is a great example of our commitment to improving both health security and the quality of life in Africa by applying technological innovations in intelligent ways.
