In the UK a company has designed an apparatus to keep young people from loitering storefronts and shops. In the old days the only thing detering we whippersnappers was a “Get out of here you kids!” following by a shaking fist. But thanks to UK company Compound Security Systems, shop owners now have an alternative: The Mosquito. The Mosquito is a device that emits a very high frequency sound that only young people can hear. (Details here).
How? The human hear becomes less sensitive to higher frequency as we age.
Some enterprising students in the UK decided to stick it to man and make the sound into a ringtone that their teachers couldn’t hear.
I haven’t tried it, but I plan on it.
Download the file here.
I can’t tell you how to put the sound on your phone, as every phone is different, but be sure your phone can support mp3s.
