Think of the ShooAway as an advanced version of a cow’s tail. Taking biomimicry to the max, the ShooAway keeps all sorts of flying bugs away from your outdoor meals. The slow-rotating blades perform a swatting action to make sure flies stay away, and the blades come with a shimmering reflective dot coating on them that are said to distract/disorient the flies, repelling them naturally without gassing or killing them. The flexible soft blades rotate at a slow speed, making sure they don’t end up becoming a whirring distraction on your lunch table or knocking over any food, and are even armed with a sensor that will stop the rotation when your hand approaches them.
The ShooAway runs on batteries, making them perfect for outdoors (no cables no hassle). They don’t kill flies like the UV zappers, or end up making your experience unsavory like bug repellent sprays… and they for sure don’t make you look like an absolute fool, swatting your arms around like a helpless rag-doll!
