The World's Largest Private Yacht is Equipped with an Anti-Photo Laser Shield

Laser Yacht!.jpg Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich is a guy that knows how to spend his money. He owns a ridiculous amount of art, a few different homes, a 40-man private army and the largest, most expensive luxury yachts on earth. The flagship is the 533 foot Eclipse, complete with two helicopter pads, two swimming pools, a disco hall, a mini submarine, a missile defense system and even an anti-photo laser shield. Yes, a laser shield.

The shield, which can be switched on and off, is designed as a measure against paparazzi. It utilizes an array of lasers that monitor the yacht's surroundings. When they detect a CCD, they shine a light at the camera, obscuring any potential shots.
