The moment you think that technology has reached its tether, it throws up an inspiring work at you. Nobody complains though. How about digital curtains? A new company called SONTE has come up with an initiative that can let you control the opacity of your windows through your Smartphone.
Just visualize: depending on the time of the day or your need for privacy (or the lack of it), you can change your window films to opaque or transparent. You can give it a middling translucent effect just as well.
Privacy via a Click on Your smartphone
In short, the smart film can be retro-fitted into any existing glass surface in your home to give yourself near-instant digital curtains. You can manage the show with your Smartphone by simply downloading the iOS or Android App.
Curtains or smart glasses in the past have been either ineffective or too expensive. Here, we have something that can change the scope of home designing or renovation altogether.
Designers willing to look beyond the box can help a homeowner extract maximum benefit out of these digitally manageable window films. The hi-tech light adjustment possible through your Smartphone is to be used to be believed.
You can read more about it at the company’s website here, or watch the video below:
Smart film for smart phones
In my opinion, SONTE film is in a class of its own. As a first, you do not need to substitute the entire window. It suffices to cut a proportionate window film and attach it to the glass partition.
An electrostatic cling keeps it glued. The cling does not interfere with the conductor clip that is used to transfer electricity to the film.
When opaque, the screen can be used as a projector screen to provide a powerful home theater effect.
A small disclaimer of sorts- even at its maximum opacity, the screen remains 5% transparent – so watch out what you do behind it.
The World At Your (Smartphone’s) Fingertips
It’s a great time to live in. We have been hearing a lot lately about Philips Hue and its attempt to play with light settings and intensity with the help of Smartphones.
Just when we were busy soaking up the Hue adventure, we have got digital curtains to keep us further occupied.
