Smart Film Glass-the House Of The Future
Aug 10, 2018

UK start-up company The Photon Project has announced its plan to launch the Photon Space, the world's first intelligent all-glass living unit. Motivated by the major positive benefits that natural light can have on our energy levels, sleep pattern and overall health, the goal of the Photon Space is to create a dwelling that allows its occupants a maximum connection to the outside world.

Posited as an ideal addition to hotels, spas, health retreats, medical centers, and other resorts, the skin of the Photon Space is made of smart glass supported by curving glass beams, switching from transparent to opaque in seconds with the help of an iPhone/Android app.

The smart glass uses a coating that partially blocks out infrared rays and totally blocks UV, reducing the suite's solar gain and preventing the increased exposure to the sun causing any harm to the inhabitants of the Photon Space. In addition, the ability to darken the glass during the day means that users of the suite can match their daylight hours to their body clock, helping international visitors to reduce the time to overcome jet lag from up to a week to as little as a single day.

"After five years of research and technological advances in the glass systems we work with, we are very excited to be able to manufacture this revolutionary suite," explains Charlie Sharman, Managing Director of The Photon Project. "As a group of experts in the glass and architecture industry, we are very passionate about bringing its’ benefits to the market."

Thanks to the Photon Space's modular design, it can be constructed in around four weeks. Leisure places are the main commercial use scenarios of the “Photon Project”. With Smart Glass Sun Rooms, whether it is basic accommodation or a spa under the sun, customers can clearly see the services they have received.

The target customers of the photon project are the health tourism market, Spas venues, and private clubs. According to surveys conducted by global health research organizations, the global health tourism market will have a scale of 400 billion!
