I think it's high time that people stop using the marketing term "space age". It doesn't exactly resonate as state-of-the-art anymore.

Yeah, not cool. Someone who's actually thinking about CMs should A: be wiser and B: not be screwed trying to get involved in CMs.

What they're actually claiming is an impedance matched plastic film, hence no reflections. Not impossible, but very shady marketing and I for one would not fall for that. BTW, I do doubt it actually does whats claimed. I bet theres a very specific instance in a controlled environment where this would work with perfect conditions.

This is more of a dated product... much like veil. Against the very early lidar guns that didn't have the best optics when used on a car with limited front surface area (think Corvette) if you veiled the lights and put something like this on the front plate it might cut down the range at which the lidar gun could get a reading in a useful way. Against modern guns that can get a reading off matte black plastic and have longer range aquisition capabilities this won't help much at real world distances. I bet if you veiled the entire front of a car and put this on you might be able to shave a 4000ft shot down to maybe a 3000ft shot but with most real world shot being way less than that it's not going to matter. This may have helped 20 years ago but it's pretty useless today.

In its day Laser Shield covers did prevent reflections off the license plate. The company over 2 years ago stopped selling license plate covers.
The issue was it only protected the plate at close range.. It did not do anything to protect the rest of the car.

Reminds me of another product, which I shall not name.

Maybe it's because it will self destruct on launch or fizzle out with a giant bang?

I still have my Laser Shields on my cars. I don't rely on them exclusively of course but I feel it is one more thing to have in a layered defense. It will likely never save me but, who knows, if it has a 0.1% success rate, that's 0.1% on top of whatever other CMs I have. :D

Jokes aside, I have one too. :)
