Brendan’s Brilliant Idea #242525

Screen protectors are nothing new. They exist for PDAs, mp3 players and even computers. Most exist to protect the screen from scratches, others from prying eyes, I want one that protects it from the fingers of other people.

Call me crazy, but little bothers me more than to see the finger printed smudge of someone who has touched my monitor, and it’s even more bothersome when I’m sitting there as they touch my monitor to point at something.

What I wouldn’t give for a small, electrified field that would zap the finger of unsuspecting persons who dared to put their finger too close to my monitor.

I’m not asking for a lethal shock… just something that’d make them say “yea… I’m never doing that again”… because my verbal reminders don’t seem to be enough.

I tell ya, it’s a million dollar idea.



  • Hehe, this reminds me of the "Wedgie 3000", a device a friend of mine and I designed. It is installed in the chair, and connected via USB to the computer. Every time the user does something stupid, it gives a wedgie to the user.

  • I need one of those to deter my manager who loves to firmly point to things on my LCD monitor, tapping it repeatedly to make it clear where he is pointing.

    You should make it pressure sensitive so it gives him and extra dose of deterrent!

  • You're nicer than me. I would opt for a high intensity laser that would lop the offending finger off before it got too close to my monitor.

  • I totally agree! The Monitor Tesla Coil Protection System is in dire need of being invented!
