Designs for the ‘Malaria Must Go' Project to Fend of Mosquitos

Andrew Stordy, of the Royal College of Art’s Industrial Design Engineering program, has developed a series of paraffin burning lamps, as part of the Malaria Must Go project.

The charcoal-powered prototype shown in the first image is named LINDA, which is a mosquito-repelling oil lamp to kill the malaria carrying bugs. The odd part about LINDA is that it first baits the mosquitoes with a combination of carbon dioxide and human foot-odor, hence the suspended sock.

Despite this oddity, it is hard to argue with the noble cause of preventing the world’s largest child killer.
