Imagine this, your house hunting and you stumble upon the most perfect dwelling you could imagine, but there’s one small problem: the windows just don’t have the privacy you need. Maybe the bathroom has a floor to ceiling window that lets anyone see you do your business. Or you have an amazing bay window that looks out onto a busy street, but having to close and open drapes over and over again is just too much of a hassle. What if you could make your window instantly opaque and clear with a push of a button?
Switchable Glass is a revolutionary breakthrough in display technology. With a simple button click, it can transform from a cloudy transparent barrier to an optically clear state. The makers of the product tell us:
The panels are produced by laminating polymer-dispersed liquid crystal film with architectural grade PVB between two layers of glass. From custom residential uses to the most high-tech commercial applications, the glass adds incredible visual effects to any setting.
- Can be applied to the inside of glass or plastic

- Sizes up to 60″ x 120
For one piece of 12″ x 12′” Switchable Glass with a power supply connected it will run you $504. See it in action below.
