    If this catches on in the UK, party supply stores there will make a killing.

    Shouldn’t the hat go OVER the lens?

      if they put it over the lens, then there’ll be more incentive to remove it. it staying is better at getting people to ask questions.

       Not if you want it to stay on for a significant length of time.  I believe it’s social commentary, not civil disobedience.

    • Antinous / Moderator says:

      Oh, that kind of party hat.  The latex kind would work better to obscure the view.

    • Bucket says:

       If you printed out a picture of what the camera is supposed to be seeing on the inside of the party hat, it might stick around longer.

    As I took my family camping over the weekend it was disturbing to see cameras on roads out in the wilderness. Getting away from this kind of crap is half the reason for going camping in the first place.

    We could do a similar thing in the US but we’d need to put a party hat on every phone and computer.
