Flash Purse

96049-anti-paparazziThanks to tabloids, we know more than we really should about celebrities. I mean, do I really need to know that Hugh Jackman is in Hawaii? If I went to some tropical place, the only ones who would see fit to report about it is me.

I’m sure it is harder to be a celebrity than the tabloids make it look. You’ve seen the video footage with the barrage of flashing cameras by the paparazzi. For those celebrities who are sick of all the flashing, they can now flash back! I’m not talking about Britney Spears when she forgot her underwear.

The Flash Purse is a concept gadget that works by sensing the activation of other flashes. I’m not certain how it does that, but somehow the device senses the flashes and gives its own flash. So when the paparazzi guy goes to get his pictures developed, all he will see is one large spot where his subject’s face will be. So much for his million dollar paycheck.

It sounds like something that celebrities would be buying in droves, doesn’t it? I suppose that this is something that the inventors of the Flash purse are counting on. This way the flash purse will sell at a high price, and the rich celebrities will pay for it.

Believe it or not, the flash purse can work at 1/125 shutter speed, which should be enough to make those shots that you see in the picture. It reminds me of those shots of ghosts or angels that people say they catch on camera. Maybe that’s how the paparazzi guy can make some money off of his work.

The “how” part is easy – there are small flash devices available designed to be placed around an object and go off when your main flash goes off. They’re triggered by a photoelectric cell – when they detect a very bright light, they go off (and might trigger other flashes that didn’t get triggered by the first impulse). Also quite usefull to put on your car ;-)

Can’t see the use for purse-mounting, though – Britney and Paris won’t flash their purse at paparazzis, but rather something else starting with p…

So this is actually a purse? A handbag? It seems like it would work for the ladies, but what about the fellas? See, I think that there should be some kind of flash sunglasses or something that way all celebrities could benefit.
