About iGlass Technology.
iGlass Technology Inc. is a developer and manufacturer of thin flexible transparent electrodes and matching electrochromic materials and devices based on it, with diverse market applications.
The Company has created a new category in smart window appliances – “digital blinds.” Digital blinds are a transparent, flexible, and durable film enabling digitally controllable variable light transmittance that provides performance similar to, but better than, your old traditional blinds.
Our first product in this category is Wisp® digital blinds, which can be easily installed on any existing window as a retrofit solution. Wisp features wireless power and digital controls that turn every window into a smart window by linking to your Smart Home or Smart Office. Wisp provides solar protection, visual and thermal comfort, and energy efficiency to buildings.
Our next products will target the automotive, rechargeable battery, and touch screens and displays markets. Our manufacturing and corporate headquarters are located in Irvine, California.
About Wisp® digital blinds.
Wisp® dimmable digital blinds is an easy upgrade to a Smart Window for all installed windows.
Just like dark glasses, Wisp-enabled windows stay perfectly clear even in their darkest tinted state. But unlike those glasses, you don’t need to take digital blinds off the window when the sun goes down – you tune the tinting up and down with a switch in real time, the way you adjust the volume of your headphones! Moreover, different parts of a single window can be tinted darker or lighter than other parts. Wisp can be controlled by voice using Amazon Alexa or Google Home, or from a smartphone app. Wisp is supported by Android and iOS.
