DIY 'privacy monitor' hides screen from prying eyes

This is an interesting application of probably a known concept. Spectacles specifically privacy spectacles of different styles could become a big part of new fashion very quickly.

Adding a fil­ter to secure your screen is hard­ly unusu­al, but a new mon­i­tor hack actu­al­ly works bet­ter by remov­ing the built-in polar­iz­ing fil­ter. An LCD with no polar­ized film sim­ply dis­plays white light, but pop­ping lens­es made from the film into a pair of glass­es lets the wear­er use the com­put­er nor­mal­ly. And you thought 3D glass­es looked silly. Read the full instruc­tions for mak­ing a pri­va­cy mon­i­tor at the source below.
