Swiveling on a bearing and attached to the back using a
convenient strap harness, this robotic arm reacts to the subtle
vibrations produced by flying mosquitoes and gnats and makes
a valiant effort in slapping the area of your body where the
insect is heading.
Accuracy is rather less important
here than vigilance, with the
hope, as described in the related article, that human hunting
mosquitos would be extinct within a few generations.
