As for the fingerprints, well . . . what happens when you accidentally touch the cover? Putting a cover on the surface of the screen doesn't seem to make any sense, since there's also the problem of getting fingerprints on the cover itself. To add, you can't have a cover for a cover for a cover to infinity. It is a problem to a problem, not a solution.

In addition, fashioning some kind of cover for your display on the cheap without specialist materials is probably not a good idea, since it's likely to degrade the viewing quality of the screen (you might experience glare or lowered brightness, for example).

The simple solution to stop fingerprints getting on the screen? Just don't touch it. It can't be that hard. If you can't help it, then there's always operant/instrumental conditioning.
You can also replace a $6 cover very cheaply, no?

Cumulatively a waste of materials (plastic if plexiglass is used) and money, considering that complete self control or a paper towel and water does the trick just fine.

I guess some of us can afford $6 and some can't.
