We found this very interesting new product by Designtex called Casper Cloaking Technology. It is an architectural film for glass walls. The purpose of the film is to obscure digital screens to outside view, perfectly balancing openness and privacy in the workplace. Casper can be applied to any clear, smooth glass on new projects or existing glass. It is recommended for conference rooms, meeting rooms and team studios. It is engineered to work with most LED displays, 40 inches or larger.
