I figure that I need to be honest about how I write these posts. I like to think I can create something out of nothing, or review something that I have received. Most of the times, as you may have noticed, I put a “Source” on the bottom because I am essentially writing about an article that I have seen elsewhere.
In the case of this Sonte Film, my Source article stated in its headline “it’s curtains for curtains”, and I loved that. I honestly could have never come up with that one. Kudos to Amanda Kooser at CNET.
The Sonte film is a Kickstarter project that allows its user to put some film on their window that can go from transparent to opaque with a touch of a button. This film can even be connected via Wi-Fi so you can control it with an app.
You can see in a video after the jump how it works, and it is a simple matter of measuring and placing it on the window like one giant Colorform. From there, it allows people who live in glass houses to have opaque walls. I have no idea if you can control the color of the opaque-ness, but that could change everything if you could. I’m picturing a lot of glass that could be be into a room of any color.
This isn’t really cheap, but I think it might be quite cost-effective over time. Just think of all the giant picture windows that can be turned into projection screens.
