After the film is installed, users can control its opacity from any location using a free iOS or Android app
Since the covering blocks UV rays, users can change its transparency to adjust a room's temperature or lighting and conserve energy as a result
The company is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to bring the Sonte Film to market and is offering kits as rewards
Rather than replacing an entire window to get the transparent-to-opaque effect, the covering can be sized and cut to fit any existing glass partition
The Sonte Film connects wirelessly to a smartphone app to instantly turn any window from clear to opaque at the press of a button
Smart glass has become a popular fixture in homes and offices for its ability to change between transparent and opaque, depending on whether an electric current is applied. It's a handy invention, but also tends to be expensive to install and offers only limited control. Sonte is hoping to change that with an affordable window film that connects wirelessly to a smartphone app to instantly turn any section of glass from clear to solid at the press of a button.
