New Developments in Glass Technology for Homes

Man watching TV

Windows have long been used as the simplest tools of meteorological detection. You look out the window to see if it’s raining or shining, and you move on with your day, accordingly. Now, however, glass panes may be about to move from the realm of low technology to the realm of high technology.

New Research

Researchers at the University of British Columbia recently discovered a new way to enhance the amount of light transmitted through glass. They did this by applying very thin coats of metal to small glass panes. Given that metal is also a natural conductor for electricity, this breakthrough has significant implications for the future of display technologies.

The Future Home

Imagine a glass door that can detect and display the temperature of the water during your morning shower. Imagine what it might be like to have glass panes around your home that can act as:

  • TV screens
  • Monitors
  • Thermal detectors

How would integrating electronic capabilities into your windows or patio doors transform the way you live?
