Sonte Film is a film capable of changing its opacity from transparent to opaque in a blink by simply applying a small electrical current to it. Installed on windows or glass, we can send our old blinds and curtains to the street, and of course, it has its own app for us to control its opacity via Wi-Fi from the iPhone.
Our colleagues from Xataka Smart Home already echoed this peculiar product a few months ago when they launched their Kickstarter campaign but the novelty is that after successfully overcoming it they are going to start shipments as soon as this month of November.
Its installation is relatively simple, and it can be cut without problems to fit the size we need, and although in the photos and videos available so far we have only seen in action the white version (when it is not transparent), Sonte hopes to offer a good color fan to help us create spaces that combine perfectly with our decor.
The biggest drawback is of course its price; about 400 dollars for a 1 x 2 meter sheet and the Wi-Fi transformer, although I have faith that as these types of technologies become popular their price will also drop making it more feasible to implement ideas like this, a meeting room with crystals that become opaque and on which we can project. Interesting, isn’t it?
