Cam blocking the new hype

Sep 12 2003 - 01:17 AM ET | In The News
A new company out of Britain says it found a way to block camera phones from taking pictures... This is different from typical "scramblers" because all of the other functions of the phone continue to work. As with seemingly all things these days, there is a catch. The phones must have special software installed on it to be aware of the signal the new device spits out and disable the camera. So all one has to do to be able to take pictures in a "dead zone" is get a camera that lacks the software. Simple.
