How to Watch Someone Else's Laptop Screen - With Your Eyes Closed!|
Copyright © 2004, Jim Mercer
So there you are on a long flight tapping away on your
laptop computer keyboard. You glance at the guy in the
seat next to you and see that he has cranked his seat
back and has his eyes closed so you ignore him.
But what you don't know is - your seat mate is
carefully watching your laptop screen even though his
eyes are closed!
How can you pull off this seemingly magical trick?
First, practice closing your left eye while leaving
your right eye half open.
Then recline your seat back a bit. If you carefully
rotate your head slightly to the left you'll be
able to see your target's laptop screen with your
Should your target look your way, he will see your
closed left eye and your reclined seat and will assume
that you're either sleeping or resting with your
eyes closed. From his position he won't be able to
see your open right eye. This will leave him feeling
relaxed and free to use their laptop in any way he
If you want to go all the way with this tactic,
you can go to an optometrist and have them make up
a pair of special glasses for you with the focal
length tuned to the exact distance of the laptop
screen. (approximately five feet)
If you fear such slick tactics might be used against
you, you might consider installing a "filter" on your
laptop. Several are available that make it almost
impossible for anyone else to view your screen.
One popular manufacturer makes a filter that's
made up of hundreds of little black straws about a
half inch long. When you view your screen you're
actually looking down these little straws.
In this way the viewing angle of your screen is
severly restricted. Should anyone attempt to view
your laptop screen from either side of you, they
will see only a pitch black screen.
