Mosquito Patch: Wear It and Never Get Bitten Again?

Makes you invisible to them

The Kite Patch promises to do for today's world what quinine and imperialism did for our great-grandparents: decrease the chance of contracting gross or fatal diseases from mosquitoes. The patch, which is really more of a sticker, is full of chemicals that prevent mosquitoes from detecting CO2 in your blood, effectively cloaking the wearer from them. An impact venture group called ieCrowd, whose president has had malaria twice, is trying to raise money to send out patches to Uganda, and made a video explaining how the patch was developed, as well as the future plans for it. I wonder how much it would cost to have my outermost layer of skin replaced with that patch material. Via Co.Exist.
