I saw this video demonstration from CES 2013 a couple of months ago.

My first reaction was; holy expletive! I've gotta have it. But, you can see in the video that it is visibly frosty even when it is off and supposed to be clear. That's unlikley to pass WAF. I suspect that it will also cost quite a bit, though I have seen no pricing information.

I must say that Aeon Labs website is a terrible piece of marketing. It's so bad it makes MCV look good. It's just useless.

This is a fascinating product.  I could have sworn I had a link saved about some sort of "smart glass."  It was expensive, but I thought about putting a small panel in the area beside my front door. 

I agree though, the Aeon website is a great example of "all hat and no cattle:  ::)

The idea is not new. And the price is very high.

10 Sq. Ft.      $930.00
100 Sq. Ft. $8,300.00
See the videos of large scale applications here.

If you're a gadget freak(a Vera user that's not a gadget freak. Ha!) you'll love Samsung's transparent LCD window(video).

The prices went down a little bit to:

10 Sq. Ft.      $930.00 BEFORE
10 Sq. Ft.      $820.00 New

However, there is no pricing for the Aeotec Smart Film yet other than speculations but I think the major difference between Aeotec and Smart Tint is that Aeotec has a built-in Z-wave in the power supply while Smart Film has just a power supply and you even have to purchase the dimmer separately for $400.

It doesn't even state if you have to buy multiple dimmers if you have multiple windows you want to change their state in one scene but if that's the case the dimmers will cost you a fortune.

Regardless, that is cool stuff and hopefully that becomes main stream within my life time ;-)

Saw this today. Looks interesting and hope the cost is reasonable when it comes out. Anyone else seen this or have more details?
