The app and eyewear combo is designed for privacy and keeping your conversations away from prying eyes

Built by Celal Göger, a phone repair storeowner in Turkey, this app makes phone displays appear white to the naked eye, and can only be seen with a special set of glasses. In search of a way to enforce a waning sense of privacy, Göger began experimenting with prototypes and says he can produce the special glasses (which operate via chip) every 10 days.

Currently the entrepreneurial mobile repairman is in the process of copyrighting the technology so he can begin to sell the new product. He says that if he succeeds in legally claiming ownership of the equipment, he’ll subsequently be able to adapt the embedded chip to work in other glasses as well. Should everything go as planned, the trend may well pick up steam while we await a time when smartphones have migrated to our smart glasses altogether.
