You won’t believe what might happen if you stick coloured tape over your phone’s camera!
Smartphones are amazing. Of course, you can use it to call and text with, but you can also play games, use it a diary and use an endless amount of handy apps. And then there’s the camera, which is a feature everyone loves. We usually use the camera on our phone to take cool pictures and capture a fun moment, but did you know you can do much more with it? Colour a piece of tape, stick it on the flash and this is what will happen…
It’s really a pretty cool feature!
People who like a little detective work will love this trick! Do you remember MTV’s Room Raiders? Our favourite part of the show was when they went mayhem with the blacklight.
