When you find out about companies that provide a lot of money for “smart glass”, the first thing that is going to hit you could be something more closely tied to reality like HoloLens.
But View, which has just closed a $ 200 million financing round after earning $ 70 million from the BlackRock, uses intelligent glass to improve windows that fit the external environment.
The connected to Windows Internet can be more transparent thanks to an application smartphone, eliminating the need for blinds. The windows can also adjust automatically depending on the weather conditions so that they are ready when the sun beats or trying to make the most of their natural light during a cloudy day.
Put pipe production instead of intelligent glass in buildings of 20 million square feet is expensive, this company capital increase amounts to nearly 650 million dollars in disclosed funds.
“Our demand has increased significantly, where we are now limited to production as a society,” said CEO Rao Mulpuri at TechCrunch. “These funds are to stimulate the growth we see.”
Mulpuri believes that more and more windows people can fill their technology in the coming decades and said that Vista is already studying the following, such as the integration of transparent screens in their windows.
The company focuses much of its efforts on North American markets. More recently, it was announced that more than 66.000 square feet of glass dynamic view will be used for the redesign of Terminal 1 at SFO airport. The company has 150 commercial installations underway and completed over 350 projects.
