Kids bite back at Mosquito

Mosquito is a device which emits a high pitched noise beyond the hearing range of most adults, but well within the hearing range of children. It was designed to get kids to "move along" from places where grouchy adults wanted them to "get orf my lawn" as a cheaper alternative to actually giving them a decent space to go to like a local park etc.

Anyway, the kids aren't thick, and the sound got sampled, then turned into a ringtone. So now, they have a ringtone inaudible to most adults, but which they can hear.

Cunning stunt I say.
