A Screen That Thwarts Those Prying Eyes

by Reads (1,677)

NYTimes.com Say you’re on an airplane, and you don’t want those Nosy Parkers around you to see that important e-mail message you’re reading on your hand-held. Or maybe you just don’t want them to see that that you’re actually playing Minesweeper. Either way, Ttools, a company in Providence, R.I., has a new answer: a piece of holographic film that fits over your hand- held’s screen to block prying eyes. For anyone looking straight-on, the screen appears normal. Anyone trying to catch a glance from the periphery sees a holographic image of interlocking chains. The film, called the Solovision Security Screen, is designed to fit most Palm, Visor and Sony (news/quote) hand-helds. It is available online (see www.ttools.com for more information) or through office-supply and department stores. Static cling, that bane of the laundry, is put to good use here: it’s what makes the film stick to the screen, and makes it easily removable. Henry Fountain
