noPhoto Aims to Screw over Traffic Cameras

by Paul Strauss

Yes, everyone hates traffic cameras. They catch you rushing through the intersection when the light changes from yellow to red, and if you make a right turn on red when you aren’t supposed to. The worst part is not even realizing you triggered a traffic camera, and just getting that damned ticket in the mail with a photo of your car. People are always trying to come up with ways to defeat traffic cameras, but most of the methods are straight-up snake oil – or straight-up illegal.

The guys over at noPhoto aim to defeat traffic cameras by developing a portable xenon strobe circuit that goes off the instant the traffic camera triggers, blinding it with a light source mounted on your vehicle. According to its developers, the noPhoto doesn’t violate any laws that prevent you from obscuring or obstructing your license plate – instead just overwhelming the camera’s sensor, and creating a useless, overexposed image.

Sure, the whole idea is borderline illegal, but it’s still kind of cool to know that it can be done – and doesn’t everyone want to stick it to those damned traffic cameras? If you’re interested in exercising your right (or not) to have a flashing strobe mounted on your license plate frame, head on over to IndieGogo and show your support for the noPhoto project. A pledge of at least $285(USD) will get you in on the action.
