LG’s new TV blasts mosquitos, has ‘Bollywood’ and ‘Cricket’ modes

There’s one sure-fire way to ruin a Netflix-and-chill session – ruddy mosquitos!

Fortunately, LG has built a new Full HD TV that fends off the blood-sucking critters, keeping your skin safe without any effort on your part. That’s because the LG 32LH520D has built-in ‘Mosquito Away’ technology that blasts out annoying sound waves that humans simply can’t hear.

The description reads:

“Protect your family from mosquito-borne diseases with LG’s latest LED TV with Mosquito Away Technology. The ultrasonic sound waves effectively drive away the mosquitos keeping your loved ones absolutely safe at home. Since no harmful chemicals are used, it is also odour-free and not hazardous to health like the conventional methods used for keeping mosquitos away.”

You’re probably wondering how useful this TV would be here in Britain? Well, not very is the truthful answer. But LG is actually only selling the LG 32LH520D in India, where 1.13 million people are affected by mosquito-borne diseases every single year.

And because this is a TV marketed at India, there’s even a dedicated ‘Cricket Mode’:

But wait, it gets better: the LG 32LH520D even has a dedicated Bollywood Mode:

The LG 32LH520D has a 32-inch LED IPS screen, a Full HD resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels, and a single USB port. It retails at 26,900 India Rupees, which works out at around £280 in the UK and $400 in the US.
