Anti-Fly Sphere Repels Insects With Refracted Light
Posted By Diane Pham On October 15, 2010 @ 6:00 pm In Green Products,Innovation | No Comments
If you can’t stand the smell or deadly poisons that come with store-bought bug spray, then this surprisingly attractive Anti-Fly Sphere 2.0 may just the pest deterrent you’ve been looking for. Designed by Netherlands-based José de la O , the Anti-Fly was inspired by the taco kiosks in Mexico , which use hanging plastic bags full of water to ward off flies by confusing their sensitive eyes with amplified colors and movements through light refraction. A little fancier that a Ziploc full of water , José’s design is a totally revamped version that consists of a beautiful glass bulb and stopper. Gorgeous, green, non-toxic and kill-free — these are words we’d never expect to use to describe bug repellent!
