Aside from tick-slaying robots, what we all need for summer is mosquito-slaying robots.

That could happen in the future, but for now there’s Kite Patch, a square you stick on your clothing to make you practically invisible to mosquitoes for up to 48 hours.

The patch uses non-toxic compounds that disrupt mosquitoes’ ability to find people through CO2, according to its fundraising campaign on Indiegogo.

The technology was developed by Olfactor Laboratories and the University of California at Riverside, with backing from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
