Do people not just want a piece of your shit, monetarily speaking, but also a glimpse of somea that hot hedge fund ass of yours? Are you sick of the effort it takes to buy up the rights to all your photos? Take a cue from Roman Abramovich and install some extra security measures. But don't just stop at protecting yourself from prying eyes while sunbathing topless on your yacht. Apply this fortress mentality to all forms of transportation and anywhere else you might consider yourself vulnerable to attack by camera.
In a move that could eventually be copied by all discerning billionaires, Abramovich has installed an anti-paparazzi shield on his newest vessel, the world's biggest and most expensive private yacht. The high-tech system on Eclipse, a mega-yacht measuring up to 557ft, relies on lasers to block any digital camera lenses nearby.
Infrared lasers detect the electronic light sensors in nearby cameras, known as charge-coupled devices. When the system detects such a device, it fires a focused beam of light at the camera, disrupting its ability to record a digital image. The beams can also be activated manually by security guards if they spot a photographer loitering.
