Italcementi Group has created a ground-breaking material that drew a lot of attention at the Shanghai Expo.

The Italian cement company has invented a transparent cement, which they used to build the Italian pavilion at the expo. Although the mixture of the concrete isn't clear, the company promises that it is stronger and more cost-effective in comparison to regular concrete. While it may not be 100% transparent, it's still an incredible innovation that may bring light to concrete buildings in the future.
