A springy telescopic screen extension that fits over your head and extands to your monitor - similar to those old cameras where the old guy had a black sheet over his head - pity that black sheets are sooo victorian.

This device will enable you to :- peruse images of a private nature at the office without fear of your co-workers seeing what you got up to on the weekend.

It will be collapsible an will cover your screen when you are away.

Perfect for gaming too - they all cheat anyway.

Monitor Hoods http://www.craftdata.co.uk/hoods.html
Scroll to bottom third of page for descriptions of hoods available for laptops, desk monitors and field monitors. These particular models are not bellowed like those available for camera LCDs, but serve the same functions in reducing ambient glare and providing privacy. Personally, I find the Hi-Def Hoods very appealing. [jurist, Sep 17 2005, last modified Sep 18 2005]

       Sounds uncomfortable really. Plus it would make your boss pay particular attention to what you are using your computer for.

       Perhaps you've never heard of the Hoodman, oft seen carousing about NAB conventions?

       Never heard of the hoodman Bris.   

       Spose monitor hoods are a better name but mine will be telescopic and flexible i.e. you can move your head around.

       //i.e. you can move your head around.//   

       A junior sales manager is secretly looking at saucy pictures of naked chinchillas on the web. No-one realizes this (honestly!), because he wears the monitor hood. Suddenly, someone scrapes her throath behind him. Startled, the sales manager turns around to see, only forgetting that he wears the hood still. Monitor gets pulled off desk, flies with a beautiful arc through the office to land with loud crash in secretary's lap.
