A developer in Tokyo has created an add-on for Vodafone handsets that's meant to be used as a night filter to let people take pictures with their phones in the dark.

Unfortunately, the night vision camera has an unexpected side effect, according to Japanese developer Yamada Denshi. In the right circumstances, it allows users to see a lot more than they bargained for.

As well as taking snaps in the dark, the Yamada Denshi infrared filter apparently sees through people's clothes.

The problem arises because the filter uses the distribution of heat to create its pictures. When attached to a high-end camera, the filter can see though certain kinds of clothing and is reportedly particularly effective on dark bikinis.

The handset most often used with the filter--the V602-SH--is only available in Japan.

A Vodafone spokeswoman confirmed that the Peeping Tom accessory isn't a problem outside of Japan. She added that because Yamada Denshi is a third-party supplier, Vodafone's control is limited. "They are not an approved third party," she said.

"We would never go to market with a phone with any kind of capacity to see people naked," she said.

Camera phones have long prompted fears of voyeurism, leading several gyms to ban them to prevent people from using them to take inappropriate pictures.

Voyeurism with camera phones became such a problem in South Korea that the government ruled that phones must make a noise when pictures are taken.

I'm sorry Broken. You took this the wrong way...I wasn't insulting your article, I was just saying that this has happened before, and will continue to happen until the technology is near-perfect.

No hard feelings, okay?

Easy man, my reply was actually a jab. It's not like it’s possible that I can read every thread on WTF, or catch every headline on every news page. Just stumbled over it and thought it was worth sharing. I usually don't cut and paste for this reason.

Yes, I've heard of this, its been around for quite a while but never before on a cell phone. It requires a filter that takes out all light except for the kind that takes the "x-ray" picture.

Who needs X Ray

IF you wanna see naked chicks, all you need to do is pay the campus security guard $50.00 to open the female locker room. Hide a couple tiny wireless video cameras from X10 and you can have streaming real-time soft core in your dorm room whenever the ladies are around. Put it on a digital recorder and you can have a variable TiVo of naked college girls ready for you whenever you want!
