I'm just trying to get a feeler for what it would cost to install some in my living room. Thanks.
for what kind of application?
what exactly is liquid crystal glass and what is it going to be used for?
sorry, just curious
Mark, a window made from liquid crystal glass looks like a standard glass window but is actually like a giant "LCD Screen" with two states: opaque and transparent. My understanding is that when current is provided, the window is transparent. When no current is provided, the glass is opaque. Here is a link with example photos:
This obtained from a newsgroup thread: Saint-Gobain quotes a lowest price of 1700 euros per square meter installed. Big coin! About $3,600 for a 3'x6' window
LCD glass doesn't really block that much light, so it wouldn't be useful in a home theater setting. It's good for privacy glass though.
Thanks Sean! Exactly the ballpark number I was looking for.
