ST. PAUL, Minn., July 24 (UPI) -- 3M says it has a solution to the common problem of smudges and fingerprints on touchscreens -- a screen protector designed to make fingerprints fade away.

3M's isn't revealing any details of how its "Natural View Fingerprint Fading" causes fingerprints to "magically" fade away after a short period, but it almost certainly has had has some kind of chemical coating worked into the protector, Slash Gear reported.

The company says in addition to its "self-cleaning" nature the screen protector is durable and scratch-resistant.

Currently available for second and third generation iPads as well as Galaxy Tab tablets, the screen protectors can be bought through Amazon for around $25, Slash Gear reported, noting reports from early adopters of positive results.
