Smart Windows are a new concept that keep rooms cool while still allowing an abundance of light to shine through.

During the MIT Energy Showcase several ideas were introduced, and a new version of low-e windows with nanocrystals was introduced. This concept could eventually keep heat out and allow only direct light into your dwelling. Lowering the temperature inside the building allows for a more controlled environment suitable for comfortable living. At the same time, this development will reduce utility bills and provide a more healthy environment.

Keeping up with new technology in a world that's becoming more and more fond of green initiatives is not easy. However, it's crucial that individuals become more aware of what's available to reduce their carbon footprint. Smart Windows are one way to live a more sustainable lifestyle.
