Anti-Paparazzi Clutch Bag to irk paparazzis

by edwin - on July 9th, 2009

Celebrities have long been used to having their pictures snapped all day long, regardless of what situation they’re in. Well, in order to throw these pesky folks off the trail, how about carrying the Anti-Paparazzi Clutch Bag around? Guess it works best for female celebrities, as this unique clutch bag comes with a tiny microcontroller, LED lights, and a sensor that detects bright flashes from external sources. Whenever the clutch detects a flash, it will automatically activate the LEDs that will theoretically over-expose the paparazzi’s shot. Works best at night for obvious reasons, and hopefully the LED and light sensors are fast enough to kick in.

    Why didn’t I think of that! Conceptually, it’s just a “hidden” slave-flash with photosensor. As soon as it sees a flash of light (with a set intensity) it will automatically trigger the slave-flash… making the picture, at least, severely over exposed.

    you can also just use high powered infrared LED’s. No sensor needed there, IR is invisible to the naked eye, but is visible for cameras, so you can just leave it on when you expect getting your photo taken.

    Although you can use IR, you’ll need very powerful IR since all dSLR have IR filter.
    And in order to get the result as shown in the above picture, you will need the slave flash thingie I mentioned earlier.

    IR only works with video cameras.
