Desktop Rearview Mirror

Never scramble to minimize an internet window again.

The problem addressed is that of being caught surfing the internet at work. Mounting a small parabolic mirror, disguised as trite office 'flair', such as a Successory, on top of a desktop computer would allow you to check your six and close inappropriate windows in time to look productive. A thin diffracting decal printed with your choice of 'flair' (custom personal photos extra) will conceal the mirror surface. The ultimate peripheral.

Same thing, but with a funny name. [tiromancer, Jan 12 2005]

       Mirrors to tack on your monitor are pretty common, but the decal is clever.

       Your idea is far sneakier than the product called My Sneaky Mirror, which is 3 1/4" and red, so certainly not in disquise.

       You've clearly never gone to a computer trade show.

       I'd say that this was widely known to exist.

       Had I been aware this product exists, I would have focused on describing the printed diffraction decal.

       Widely Baked.

       Baked, like everyone said: I used to have one. They're not so clever on laptops though. What you need is a portion of the screen itself that turns into a mirror.

       Why not just get a webcam to point over your shoulder?
