HP Develops Screen Feature To Save Spying Over The Shoulder

No one likes someone is spying on him or her. People don’t want others to stare at one’s laptop screen. But what is the solution to it. It is unavoidable, just until now. HP has found a way for it. It has developed a new screen that is said to cut off viewing angles. Activation is only a press of a button away to bar spying from behind.

The screen prevents light from shooting off to the side when the feature is active and only allows the user to see. It is said 95 percent of light directed to side angles are cut off.

The screen is similar to the “privacy filters” available in the market, but it has downside that the effect is permanent until the filter is removed from the screen.

For the HP screen the feature can be turned on or off anytime by just press of a button so the dark screen is not permanent.

HP has named the feature as Sure View and has developed it in partnership with 3M.

3M is expertise in the technology as it sells such stick-on filters.

HP said its upcoming EliteBook 1040 and EliteBook 840 laptops will come with the Sure View screen. It will support touch too.
