The new LG Mosquito Away TV is equipped with an ultrasonic device that produces a sound wave to repel mosquitoes. The technology, which has been tested by International Institute of Biotechnology and Toxicology, does not use any toxic chemicals and requires no refilling or any other maintenance. Ultrasonic waves have a frequency range above that of human hearing range; they are harmless and unnoticeable. Moreover, LG claims that the technology does not require the TV to repel mosquitoes.
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 TV has been launched only in India and will be available at a price of Rs 26,900 ($400) for a 80cm screen and Rs 47,500 ($710) for a 108cm screen.
