Does lack of privacy in public places bother you? Well now it doesn't have to.

A Turkish mobile phone repair store owner has invented an "invisible" phone screen that only its user can see.

After six months in the making, store owner Celal Göger, says he has invented an app which turns mobile phone screens white. To properly see the screen you have to wear a special pair of glasses with a built in chip.

The micro-chipped glasses allow the user to navigate the phone in private - away from prying eyes.

Göger told Reuters he can make a pair of the glasses in just 10 days. He has since tested the technology in his hometown of Bismil.

The inventor is set to copyright the invention, ahead of selling the product.

Göger said he also plans to create a nanochip compatible to fit any pair of glasses.
