Gear  |  Gadget
Photos? No, thanks! This Crazy Clutch Bag is designed to you are NOT be photographed. It is an LED flash built-into a clutch purse, when the device detects a camera flash it will send out a brighter flash to blind the camera. Designed by Adam Harvey.
"Although Harvey began developing the device for his class, he wasn¡¯t able to perfect it, and since last fall he has continued to refine the design. Currently the wiring and batteries fit in a ladies¡¯ clutch, but he hopes to continue reducing the size of the device to the point that it could be worn in something as small as a pendant or tie tack. In its current form the device is activated by powering it on and then tilting the clutch. The sensor will register a flash being fired from up to a 45 degree angle each way.
The device works at up to 1/125 shutter speed, thus effecting slower, low-light shots. "
Harvey is currently working on the patent for the anti-paparazzi device, and continues to refine the design as well.
