NTU invents smart window that tints and powers itself
Singapore (SPX) Dec 18, 2014
Nanyang Technological University (NTU) scientists have developed a smart window which can darken or brighten without the need for an external power source. This unique self-tinting window requires zero electricity to operate and is also a rechargeable battery. The window's stored energy can be used for other purposes, such as to light up low-powered electronics like a light emitting diode (LED). Currently, the window solutions in the market are either using permanent tinting which cannot bri ... read more
