Laptop computers are frequently used in outdoor environments
where sunlight and glare make screen viewing very difficult
due to screen wash-out. The CompUshade® blocks most of these
visual impediments and increases apparent screen contrast,
thereby reducing eye-strain and helping to control Computer
Vision Syndrome (CVS). The CompUshade® also helps to provide
viewing privacy which is especially needed for laptops used
in public places. This patented design can be folded closed
while remaining attached to your laptop, so it is always with
you when you need it.
How it works:
A left hand and right hand hinged panel assembly, each consisting
of an integral side panel plus top panel, are hinged to a
mounting strip. The mounting strip becomes attached to the
outside of your laptop’s lid using pressure-sensitive Velcro
strips. The assemblies overlap near the top center to form
a 3-sided tunnel around the screen, approximately 9 inches
The resulting tunnel blocks most light infiltrating around
the top and sides of your screen. The panel assemblies can
remain affixed to the outside of the laptop’s lid and swing
nearly flat for storage.
The unique, overlapping hinged panels allow width adjustments
from 9 inches to 16-1/2 inches, to create a "perfect"
fit for virtually all laptops, including 17 inch Laptops (measured
The panels are made of ultra lightweight high density polyethylene,
a highly durable, synthetic material that blocks 100% of light
Weighs approximately 7 oz. and adds only 3/8 inch thickness
to laptop. All components are black.
