Almost of malaria patient is in Africa. Many charity group distribute mosquito nets, insecticide and vaccine to prevent malaria.
But currently solution's result is inefficient. We need to more cheaper, more light and more considerate about their life and environment.
FANGUARD is fan shaped mosquito protector, It use piezoelectric effect and solar power to charge ultra sonic sound.
After charging, if they turn on the switch, it generates eco-friendly and non toxic ultra sonic sound. Mosquito don't like that sound so it will fly away.
