Love It Or Leave It: ShotGuard Panties

If you're one of those people worried about how the widespread use of digital cameras and camera phones has contributed to illegal and icky photo taking - or if your name is Britney, Lindsay or Paris and you're prone to panty (and lack of panty) shots - you'll be pleased to learn there's a remedy in the works.

In an effort to prevent "panchiras," (or "panty-glimpses" using infrared), textile company Cramer Japan has developed a nylon and polyurethane weave that blocks infrared rays. They are called ShotGuard Inner Shorts and will block out pervy photogs. They cost $17. Someone get Tinseltown's starlets a Monday-Sunday pack stat!

You can be at a bar in a skirt and someone can "upskirt" you and you'd never know. Escalators are another big spot. If I understand these, the perv won't get any shot, not even of your panites

If you're that concerned about it maybe you should get a restraining order or star wearing pants.

What if they begin to make everything of this material. So the day you don't want to be photographed, you just wear your nylon and polyurethane weave that blocks infrared rays shirt and skirt and whatever :D

I said leave it, because I can't think of a time that I'd actually need them. But figurine is right... they do look uber comfy...

It's good I guess, but totally useless for me as I wear panties all the time and don't have the paps pointing their cameras down south every time I get out of my car.
