  • Patent number: 10963010
    Abstract: A foldable light shade and privacy shade visor for electronic device screens, particularly for use on laptops, electronic tablets and devices. The light and privacy shade is constructed of three semi-rigid panels with four molded plastic and rubber clips integrated into its surface. The areas between the three panels form flexible hinges allowing the light and privacy shade to fold open when in use and fold flat for carrying. The integrated plastic and rubber clips are used to attach the visor to the edges of the device screen securely. The light and privacy shade allows the electronic device to be used in direct sunlight, artificial light and ambient light by preventing light rays and glare from diminishing the view of the screen, while also preventing the device from overheating in the warmth generated by intense light, and providing privacy by shielding the contents of the screen from the view of third parties.
