I had forgotten about the huge hoods some of those old Radius monitors had. Interesting read about the smocks too

Unfortunately, so did most of the owners! Haven't got a copy of either anymore as last Radius monitor died a couple of years ago, but did recently stumble over the old colour-matched velcro for attaching the hood!

Well I meant not visible black on black, but I've just noticed what I think is a change. The footer is now #050505 (vs #000000). Still hard but not impossible to see on my calibrated-by-eye desktop monitor (one of the last Gateway FPD2485W), but my totally uncalibrated laptop clearly shows the difference (Dell TruLife WUXGA).

That's really all the Radius Supermac ones were. Long strip, scored and folded, with 6 small pieces of adhesive velcro to keep in place. Your local art/craft store should be able to come up with some suitable plasticised material or foam-core - once you've prototyped it in cardboard.

Advantage of making your own is that it can be asymmetrical if that's what you lighting conditions call for. Because they are inconvenient when in place.

Or just black out the windows! Assuming you can touch-type ...
