It looks as though the transparent concrete named Litracon will finally become available. The concrete uses some sort of fiber optic cable which allows you to see through concrete.

Part of the inspiration is the use of different types of material. Architects are looking for ways to make use of materials that transcend modern architecture and provide a warmer space for those who occupy it. Stats for LiTraCon Trending: Older & Buzzing
