For your eyes only: These glasses would fit perfectly on James Bond

Move over, Mr. Bond. Sceptre Technologies Inc. of City of Industry, Calif., has
invented a brand-new way to hide sensitive data in plain sight.


The Invisible LCD Privacy Screen shows its secrets only to authorized users who wear
special sunglasses. Everyone else just sees a white screen. Sceptre has manipulated the
layers of glass and the film inside to display white noise to unauthorized viewers.


The polarized sunglasses admit the specific light wavelengths transmitting data to the
screen.


Sceptre officials said they designed the display for government customers who wanted to
secure their computing environment. The Invisible LCD Privacy Screen is a $400 option on
any LCD or notebook computer the company sells. Sceptre also can retrofit its older
notebooks in about three weeks.
