We reported this week about a Japanese Company introducing flexible Electronic Curtains. We got contacted by US based Innovative Glass Corp., which, since a couple years ago, has been offering glass that can be electronically dimmed.
Innovative Glass offers two kinds of so called EGlass. SPD Smartglass is a soft blue tinted glass that gives you the ability to "tune" the amount of light and sun glare streaming through a window or skylight.
The LC Glass is a privacy product that allows you to instantly switch the glass from clear to frosted white.
All EGlass products are powered with ordinary 110 VAC power and use a small amount of current to activate them. Innovative Glass can custom manufacture all kinds of shapes to fit your needs.
More details on the Innovative Glass site.
I would need a solution that works on top of my existing window. It is just too much trouble and cost to replace the existing window glass as it is a brand new home. So for me the electronic curtains actually are a more promising solution.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
