Small pic smart window

Smart windows mean something different to everyone. From thermochromism, electrochromism, and photochromism, to the ability to serve as windows and solar panels simultaneously, the possibilities are endless.

Maybe windows replace televisions in the future. Maybe their features become something you can control with your phone. We just want to know the coolest or most valuable thing you can imagine a smart window doing in the future.
