Apple Patent Technology To Stop You From Using Your Phone At Gigs

Screen Shot 2016-06-29 at 3.23.06 PM

The time of watching your favourite band play in a sold out venue through some douchebags phone screen could soon be over with the development of a new technology by Apple, which could soon stop punters from taking photos and videos at shows.

The technology will work by allowing the camera to take in information via the invisible spectrum of infrared light; the technology would allow venues or artists to then set up a transmitter that would send a signal that would disable the audience’s phone’s camera. Fortunately, that’s not all this snazzy new technology can do! It’ll also be able to contribute to augmented reality and stopping illegal filming in cinemas.

However, Apple has yet to have shown any signs that they are planning to implement it any time soon, so you’ll have to put up with it just a little bit longer.

In the meantime, use Marky Ramone’s homemade Smartphone Swatter:
