Smart Glass and Its Benefits

From Andrea Piacquadio on

What Are the Different Types of Smart Glass?

There are two main types of smart glass: active smart glass and passive smart glass. Active smart glass requires an electrical charge to change the glass’s opacity, while passive smart glass does not need an electrical charge to change its opacity.

What Are the Benefits of Using Smart Glass?

Versatility and Convenience
Smart glass is dynamic. It can change states to fit the inhabitants’ needs and can completely transform the room when it becomes opaque or transparent. Some forms of smart glass can even be used as a projection screen.

What’s Next for Smart Glass?

Active smart glass technology only began in the early 2000s, but it is already taking off and will likely become even more popular in the coming years. The rise of smart glass will allow more people to balance their natural light needs with their privacy needs while also becoming more energy efficient.
