Scientists have developed a laser with artificial intelligence (AI) designed to neutralise cockroaches as a new form of pest control.
The team’s experiments showed that its laser system “enables the immediate and selective neutralisation of individual insects” from a distance of up to 1.2 metres.
You certainly want to be sure to have some remote kill switch for this device, as I would not want to walk up to it to disable it if it has some malfunction. Will also be interesting to see what else it zaps by mistake… although mosquitoes would be great!

The system uses a Jetson Nano computer with CUDA software to target cockroaches with the laser.
