Beyond CES 2016: Smart windows

Smart Windows Coming Soon. (Jetson Green, 7/21/2016)
Smart windows are the logical next step in the evolution of home design. Basically, the idea behind them is that instead of adding blinds or curtains to windows, so as to control the amount of heat or light entering the home (or for privacy) the windows would already have this function built in. Sounds futuristic, but a team of researchers at Harvard’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have found a simple and quite affordable way to achieve it.
