The Null Device
Blinding Big Brother
Don't like surveillance cameras? A concerned New Yorker has discovered that you can temporarily
blind them with a cheap laser pointer
. Coupled with a telescopic sight, cameras can be jammed from well out of range.
The implications are far-reaching; other than putting laser pointers onto
the wallet chains of homeboy trainslashers, and adding them to the already extensive Al Qaeda doomsday arsenal, it looks like they could join aluminium-lined headgear as must-have accessories for the modern paranoid
(Though I'd be surprised if spy agencies, terrorists, professional burglars, &c, hadn't known about this for years.)
