Did you know that there are glass panes that can be ”tuned” to control the amount of light, glare and heat passing through?

The technology is utilised in office buildings, private homes, trains and planes, hotels and more, and has many applications – from interactive walls to exposure of messages to indoors temperature regulation.
We learned a lot about smart glass from a project we have worked on in May. Read more about this modern technology on Wikipedia (scroll down the article to find some cool examples from movies): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smart_glass
