Dutch bio-hackers mobilize malaria testing

Amplino may be the ultimate garage project. Three DIY bio-hackers have created a malaria testing kit that can identify different strains of malaria with 95 percent accuracy in under 40 minutes. The testing device is connected via Bluetooth to a mobile phone, making it possible to track malaria outbreaks and the spread of particular strains.

Laser beam uses graphics chip to identify and zap mosquitoes

Graphics have proven to be very useful in powering video games where you can zap huge numbers of bad guys in a minute. But now they may prove useful in powering lasers that can zap live mosquitoes out of the sky — all in the name of eliminating malaria.
