Jingool / Smartphone Gadget


Jingool is a gadget for finding insects in the nature. Whether we rank the creatures on our planet according to their population or their variety, the insects top our list so it seems that they should be easy-to-find but actually they are not. This gadget attracts insects by producing ultrasonic waves which insects use to attract their opposite sex.
Jingool has a special software which can be installed on cellphones. The software searches for all insects present in nearby area and finds the insect chosen by the user. The user can take his/her favorite photo of the insect and finally share his/her own taken images of an insect online.
