It is an LED flash built-into a clutch purse, when the device detects a camera flash it will send out a brighter flash to blind the camera.

"Although Harvey began developing the device for his class, he wasnt able to perfect it, and since last fall he has continued to refine the design. Currently the wiring and batteries fit in a ladies clutch, but he hopes to continue reducing the size of the device to the point that it could be worn in something as small as a pendant or tie tack. In its current form the device is activated by powering it on and then tilting the clutch. The sensor will register a flash being fired from up to a 45 degree angle each way. The device works at up to 1/125 shutter speed, thus effecting slower, low-light shots. "

Harvey is currently working on the patent for the anti-paparazzi device, and continues to refine the design as well.
