Sounds like science fiction! How can glass be glare-free, self-cleaning, AND water-repellant? The wonder kids at MIT continue to innovate with this new texture to the glass surface itself that eliminates many of the problems with glass. It used to be with lead glass had much better optical clarity, but since lead is no longer an acceptable around children and households, glass in windows took a step back.
This new invention has implications beyond standard household glass. Imagine the glass on PV solar cells becoming more efficient, cameras working in moist environments, or cell phone screens that stay clean. TintCenter can’t wait to see this product arrive in the mass-market in another 10-15 years.
