DJ Chris Holmes may not a celebrity like Sir Paul McCartney, but he certainly knows how to keep paparazzi from snapping unauthorized images of him or whoever who wears his brilliant invention which he refers to as Flashback Anti-Paparazzi Hoodie. Like many awesome creations, Chris’s invention was kind of by accident. It happens during a tour with Sir Paul McCartney when he noticed that reflective garments make flash-taken photos obscure. While the photos were pretty much ruined, the light bulb moment struck Chris and he set out to create highly reflective clothes that would make photos taken by paparazzi pretty much worthless.
The material used in Chris’ invention is not run-of-the-mill reflective material; the fabric is coated with glass nanospheres that amplifies brightness of the subject to a level where features of the face cannot be clearly distinguished, thus ruining the paparazzi’s day. The result is pretty amazing. Don’t believe? We suggest you see it in action in the product pitch video after the break. Other features of the Flashback Anti-Paparazzi Hoodie include rib knit cuffs and hem, two hand pockets and fully lined interior. Flashback Anti-Paparazzi Hoodie is available for pre-order through Betabrand for $205.20 with delivery expected to happen sometime this month.
