This Patch Could End Malaria

Where mosquitoes proliferate, so does malaria. That's a big problem: malaria is the leading cause of death for over half the world's population, and pregnant women and children are especially susceptible to infection.

The Kite could change that. It's a non-toxic sticker that foils a mosquito's prey-finding system by blocking its Co2 receptors, making its wearer effectively invisible to the blood-sucking insects. Pretty cool, right? 

The Kite patch has already doubled its funding goal on Indiegogo, and will next go through a testing phase in Uganda before being scaled for affordability and deployed to the rest of the world.
