A technology developed by Zeiss has made it possible to utilize transparent glass or plastic in a whole range of different ways. The see-through surfaces with integrated, invisible microstructured optics permit a range of different applications, thus enabling innovations like gesture recognition or eye tracking without any visible optical systems.

Jena/Germany — The smart glass can also be used in smart homes. Thanks to their innovative technology, glass window panes can assume monitoring tasks both inside and outside the home. They’re also capable of filtering sunlight, measuring the temperature and displaying a host of information. It is possible to use any size of glass with any number of functions, explains Dr. Alexandre Gatto from Zeiss Microstructured Optics. The smart glass will soon be able to illuminate, identify, filter and project.
