Choices of Smart Glass for Homes Multiply

Glass for homes has evolved, extending now to several versions of so-called smart glass. Smart glass provides privacy, deadens noise and controls indoor temperatures, among other benefits. Privacy glass that is switchable turns from opaque to clear at the touch of a button. Switchable privacy glass consists of two panels and a film between them that conducts electricity. The glass remains opaque until the voltage is turned on, which activates the film and gives the glass transparency. Anthony Branscum of Innovative Glass Corporation in Plainview, New York, told the Wall Street Journal that homeowners exposed to smart glass at their workplaces want similar glass for their homes. Weve seen more and more consumer-driven requests for the product, Branscum told the Journal.
