mylk Anti-paparazzi System
The celebrity yachtsman who has everything but privacy will appreciate the novel antipaparazzi system developed by the German design firm mylk (hey, they’re designers; they can capitalize however they want). The essential idea is that super-bright, highly directional Xenon lights are arrayed so they shine directly into the lens of pestering photographers onshore but not into the eyes of those onboard. The system can be automatically controlled by motion or light sensors or managed by a crew member using a graphical PC interface. The handsome power-adjustable fixtures can also contain cameras, speakers, and regular illumination. Custom built, prices on request.
