Tech of the Super Rich: Anti-Paparazzi Digital Camera Laser Shield

This is Wired.com Gadget Lab article reads like something out of a Tom Clancy high tech thriller novel…

Russian Billionaire Installs Anti-Photo Shield on Giant Yacht

So, this multi-bazillionaire’s mega-yacht has all the usual ammenities: Two helipads (when one just isn’t enough), two swimming pools, its own mini-sub, and missle proof windows. Naturally, it needs something special to set it off from the other super-yachts. And, it does in the form of a laser powered digital camera detector that fires a bolt of light when a digital photo snapper is detected and, apparently, washes out the photo.

I’d be pretty disappointed to see a washed out photo (and possibily a damaged CCD) if I saw this super yacht and ook its photo. But, I have to admit that this tech definitely gets super-spy high-tech cred.
