Billionaire's yacht uses lasers to thwart paparazzi
Apparently, what the man who has everything really wants above all else is privacy. And with enough money, he can even buy that.
Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich's new $2 billion yacht is equipped with something you won't find on any other boats: an anti-photo shield. When turned on, it uses lasers to sweep for camera sensors. When they detect one, they blast it with light, making any photo taken pointed at the boat not come out. Not a bad little trick, eh?
