Electronic flight bags, or EFB’s for short, have quickly become the flight bag of choice in the cockpit world of pilots. No longer does a pilot have to carry on paper or hard copy instructions that might weigh as much as 30 to 40 pounds when going to work.
Using your laptop or tablet while sitting at home you don’t usually worry about the reflective sun glare on your display.
But what if you were out in the desert, or other hostile territory, on the trail of ISIS, where there is little or no shade, trying to coordinate military forces or logistics with the sun beating down on you from above? While there are laptops and tablets that have been built for these specific situations, they still do not perform as well when the user wears polarized sunglasses. You may get rid of the glare, but the darkening effect of the glasses would limit your vision of the screen in front of you. It almost seems like a no-win situation.
Being out on the water in a boat is one of the most exhilarating and enjoyable activities that you can enjoy. Whether it’s fishing, water skiing, tubing, cruising, on fresh or salt water, nothing beats the fresh air, water spray and the sun.
What was once a luxury is now a necessity. These days, every college student needs a computer of their own. With a computer, students can read files, communicate with professors and classmates, and work on papers without having to go to a library or computer lab.
Think about all the ways you put your eyes to work during the day. From the first moment you wake up to the last moment before you go to sleep, your eyes are your guide to the world around you. They help you work through the basics—reading the clock when the alarm goes off, checking labels on food you’ll eat for breakfast, knowing when it’s safe to cross a street. And they also help with more complex tasks—reading reports at work, for example, or absorbing a piece of literature that you’re in love with.
Retina displays and glossy screens are all part of the new wave of high definition laptops, smartphones and tablets. Retina displays have given viewers a sharpness and clarity that was unheard of just a few short years ago, and virtually every type of video viewing screen, from televisions to GPS units, have some sort of high definition technology.
Nowhere is a tablet or laptop exposed to more constant use and abuse than in a mobile office. And there is not a more demanding mobile office than a police car. When on the road, police cars have to deal with driving down streets and highways, with the sun coming into the cab at every which angle. To alleviate these challenges, the rugged NuShield anti-reflective screen protectors have been integrated with police mobile systems.

How you can protect yourself from headaches caused by the blue light emitted from your LED monitor
If you’re someone whose job involves sitting in front of a computer for eight hours a day and staring into its monitor, you’ve probably read an article or two — or perhaps seen a news report, or maybe even had a conversation — about the negative effect that blue light emanating from screens can have on our eyesight, and even on our overall health.
According to leading ophthalmologists, the problem is largely a result of continuous, long-term exposure to the light produced not only by computer monitors, but also from tablets, flat-screen LED TVs (such as those manufactured by Samsung, Sony, and LG), and OLED TVs with curved screens, including the very newest models from Panasonic, Samsung, and LG. A report from GigaOm’s technology research platform, meanwhile, revealed that long-term exposure to blue light after dark can lead to chronic insomnia, and even breast cancer.
“Being in the presence of light at night disrupts the body’s natural circadian rhythms by suppressing the production of [the sleep hormone known as] melatonin,” according to the report’s author. “But melatonin does far more than help us get sleepy — it’s also an antioxidant that appears to play a pivotal role in slowing the progression of cancer and other diseases.”
