Have you ever been caught checking your Facebook at work and had your boss giving you the evil eye? Or perhaps you were working on your soon-to-be-huge screenplay at Starbucks and the girls sitting next to you were giggling at your space alien love story? Well, LG has come to your rescue. The electronics giant has developed a new 14.1″ screen that allows the visibility to be adjusted by angle. While it’s capable of a 175-degree viewing range, it can be adjusted to just 60-degrees to help avoid those wandering eyes. Typical LCD screens have subpixels for the three primary colors while the LG screen has extra subpixels to control this effect without affecting coloring on your screen. Pretty cool, eh? Now your IM fights with your girlfriend or pr0n pop-ups from those questionable sites you visit won’t be so embarrassing anymore.
