Mosquito-killing Laser Turret

I have just recently stumbled upon an interesting piece of technology in development. Its the Deathstar for mosquitos!

Its developed by an invention company called Intellectual Ventures. The objective of the project is to help kill malaria mosquitoes in third-world countries. The device is made up of basic electronic components sourced from everyday electronic items it seems.

Here is a nifty video demonstration. Not e the blue flashes on the mosquitoes wings are it being hit by the laser. This video is a fraction of a second of what happens during a zap. Once this technology becomes commercialized, bug zapper or laser turret? Hmm… Laser Turret please!
