The StealthSwitch, described as the worlds first desktop cloaking device, is a foot switch that connects to a computer and, when tapped, hides the current window being displayed on the monitor.
Product inventor Howard Barsky says the $39.95 device fits discreetly under a desk and is intended to prevent office and cubicle visitors from seeing what you dont want them to see.
When looky-loos leave your office, another click of the foot switch brings back all hidden applications.
Although Barsky figures most people will view the device as a slacker switch for those who internet surf on company time, he insists it also would be good for attorney and government-types who dont want anyone to catch a glimpse of important documents.
The device is available at stealthswitch.com.
