I made this shade for the ipad mini. It's lightweight and can fold flat but it's too big to fit in the fly-more bag. I used some reflectix that was lying around the house, a cardboard box from an electronics product, some duct tape and an old pair of spandex shorts... that's it!
The box was from a amazon shipment I received, it was similar to the material they use on the ipad or iphone boxes. I used the lid of the box and cut the top off so I had a rectangle frame for the shade and taped some reflectix around it. After it was secure, I cut a hole to allow access to the screen. Cut a piece of spandex and taped it on and making sure it was taut. Sliced a line in the spandex and tested it out. I had intended to use some elastic to secure it but the rigid cardboard I used for the frame was the perfect size to wedge in the controller arms without falling out. I might add the elastic in the future but for now this will do.

Why not? Doesn't seem to bother my eyes.
