Teen Repeller

There has been an outcry by civil liberties groups across the developed world after a $1500 device called Mosquito was installed in a number of places to repel young adults and teens. The device emits irritating sound and thus drives away loiters (and or harmless bystanders) aged between twelve and twenty-something. The sound cannot be heard by either younger children or older people.

Read more about it here.

To find if your ear is sensitive to the sound, you may download an mp3 here and listen to it.

In a not-so-interesting way I learn that my ears are still sensitive (as I could hear the screech) - Phew!
