LG Mosquito Repellent TV — LG Electronics has launched a TV with “Mosquito Away technology”, which claims to get rid of all mosquitoes in a house in a soundless, odorless and invisible manner. The LG Mosquito Away TV, is equipped with an Ultra Sonic device which once activated, uses the sound wave technology to make mosquitoes fly away without emitting any harmful radiations. The pricing of the LG  TV starts from Rs 26,900 (for 32-inch) and goes up to Rs 47,500 (for 42-inch).

The company says that it studied the Indian market and concluded there wasn’t any device of this kind that addressed the growing medical and hygienic issue of mosquitoes in the country.

“The technology complies with the norms of global organizations and has been tested by International Institute of Biotechnology and Toxicology (IIBAT), India as well. This technology does not use any chemicals, used in other toxic repellents, nor does it require refilling or any other maintenance and the most important part of the technology is that this independent operation which does not require the TV to be on to make the mosquitoes fly away,” it said.

‘We can’t tell how effective this mosquito-repelling technology will be, because even the machine-based repellents that actually have the primary function of killing mosquitoes barely do any good. But this is not the first time someone has launched a gadget or device to repel mosquitoes and insects.’

Last year, India’s capital New Delhi alone had over 10,500 cases of dengue, a viral disease transmitted by mosquitoes. Meanwhile, only 11 percent of India’s population lives in Malaria free zones, according to the 2014 World Malaria Report, with over 850,000 cases being recorded in 2013. India is one of the world’s hotspots for mosquito-spread diseases such as malaria and dengue.

Back in 2014, LG had launched an air conditioner that came with a dedicated mode for a mosquito-free environment in a room. But if you think about it, how many mosquitoes actually survive in an air conditioned room. Anatomically, mosquitoes are cold-blooded insects and they need over about 26 degrees to survive. The point of an air-conditioner would be lost if you maintained a room temperature of 26 degrees or higher.

Then there are mosquito repellent wrist bands! Apparently, you just tie the band around your child’s wrist and you don’t need to worry a bit about the deadly mosquito bites. These bands claim to repel mosquitoes using aroma from natural plants. But we cannot confirm if any of these are actually effective.

According to National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (NVBDCP) and official Government of India Reports, in 2015, a Dengue Outbreak was at its worst in India breaking all records of even the last 20 Years with over 10,683 registered cases of Dengue alone.

“It is once again LG’s way of putting technology to good use and making life better for consumers in India. With LG’s Mosquito Away Television, it is time to bring home health, happiness and safe environs with LG.”
