Roman Abramovich has installed an anti-paparazzi shield on his yacht Eclipse, which is said to be world’s biggest and most expensive yacht. It is equipped with infrared lasers which detect electronic light sensors in nearby cameras, known as charge-coupled devices, reports The Times. If any device is detected, the system lets out a beam of light at the camera, preventing it from taking a picture.
The laser beams can also be manually activated by security guards, says the report.
The yacht, which has two helipads, two swimming pools, a mini-submarine and a home theater in all its cabins, also has missile proof windows.
But will the anti-paparazzi shield work? The yacht is bound to be every photographer’s dream shot, and they will go to any lengths to get it. What do you think; will the paparazzi manage to break the shield? Kipp thinks yes.
