A patch that will save lives

This new clothes patch called Kite contains chemicals that, when released, interfere with the CO2 sensing of mosquitoes, essentially making the person carrying the patch invisible to them.

This is excellent news for Africa, where malaria causes 660 thousand deaths a year! I found this here, and their website is here (they are looking for donations via their IndieGoGo campaign).

Faith in humanity restored... at least somewhat!
