If you’ve got a window that you’d love to make opaque without shades, and still let in more light when you need it… here’s a smart solution.
At CES, Aeotec previewed digital privacy window film that starts out perfectly clear… and turns opaque at the touch of a button. It’s a total DIY project: cut the special contact film to fit your window, apply, add electrical clips and voilà. It’s WiFi-enabled, so you can even control it from your smart device or computer. This could be great in a bathroom (let in the daylight when you want to put on makeup!), or in a window that faces a neighbor’s place, so you can have sunshine by day and privacy by night.
DIY Network and I made a video about it—see the film in action here.
You can’t buy it quite yet, but you can get on the list here.
Peek into the future.
