By Jes­sica Leber.  Good day­light inside a build­ing can be a major mood and pro­duc­tiv­ity enhancer. Other times, it can cause uncom­fort­able glare or heat, drive up energy costs, or sim­ply require ugly blinds.

That’s the propo­si­tion of the “smart” glass tech­nol­ogy that is just start­ing to be incor­po­rated into the design for com­mer­cial office build­ings, hos­pi­tals, uni­ver­si­ties, and other large build­ing spaces. It’s one of those small inno­va­tions that could really change how peo­ple feel inside their workplaces.
