Technology Quarterly

The Economist's Technology Quarterly is out, and as always has many interesting articles.

My favorites:
Using lasers in farming
Carbon capture
Machines that can see

Yeah, you can do a lot with lasers. Like kill mosquitoes that carry malaria.

Yeah, I read that. Actually have it ready to go for my next batch of interesting articles.

Personally, I don't see why villages in Africa with no tech would get a PC and lasers to fight mosquitoes rather than just a PC for normal reasons. I think the more likely application is for rich hikers in the first world. I would pay big bucks to put one of these on a picnic table or next to the camp fire.
