Researchers at the University of Cincinnati have teamed up with the brightest minds from National Taiwan University, Hewlett Packard and Merck to develop these turnable smart windows. These windows allow users to control the extent of tint, and choose their desired level of brightness, color temperature and opacity.

With these windows, you can turn up the tint for extra privacy or boost the color temperature in order to bathe your space with the warmth of natural sunlight.

These smart windows could have a wide variety of applications in different settings. Further developed, they could be use to control visible light and infrared heat transmission simultaneously, which could be used in the summer to prevent homes from heating up or in the winter to keep things warm and comfortable.
