Disabling the peepers…

Brit companies Sensaura and Iceberg Systems have announced Safe Havena, a ‘patent pending technology platform’ which will disable camera phones and digital cameras within a particular area.

I’m not sure that this is such a good thing for more reasons than I care to go into here. I know that there are problems with nasty sordid people and intellectual property theft etc, but this feels like using a very large hammer to crack a very teeny nut. I think the name is stooopid too, so there!

‘Safe Havenš works by transmitting a signal in a localised environment such as a school, swimming pool, office facility or factory, which disables the camera functionality of devices in the nearby environment. Safe Haven enables digital cameras within a variety of electronic devices to be disabled including camera phones, camera PDA’s, digital cameras and multi-purpose MP3 players.’
