This device would be a small USB motion detector and its associated software.

What would happen is that the system would be programmed to immediately change your desktop to something "work-looking" like a spreadsheet or something whenever another person walked toward your cubicle.

It would be instantaneous, eliminating those embarrassing 'clicks' to minimize web browsers and such when the boss walks by.

High tech goofing off at its best.
