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.
