Default privacy-ate your monitor

A few days ago the folks over at Hack-a-Day highlighted an article on Instructables that shows you how to hack an old LCD monitor and convert it into a privacy screen. Now the question is, could this be a viable solution for those who need more privacy on their tablets in public situations?

The idea is pretty simple. Basically, inside the LCD screen there is a layer of polarized film that enables us to see what is being generated on the screen. By removing that layer and installing it onto a pair of glasses, the screen always appears white to onlookers, while the person viewing the screen through the glasses can see the actual screen images.

Now, of course, potential spies could manufacture their own glasses and people typically don’t jump on the opportunity to wear glasses, as seen in 3D technology advancements. On the other hand, tablets are making their way into more situations where privacy is paramount. For example, as many medical professionals begin using tablets in their practices, wearing a pair of special privacy glasses to give patient’s sensitive medical information an extra layer of security seems very reasonable.

first effortless impression: cool for porn surfing.

More impressions will follow once I think about this more thoroughly.

how much does an LCD monitor cost these days?

we can put together a team of vcoderz testers, and each person chips 20$ and we conduct the experiment and record the results and post our video here
