Why is Smart Glass so Expensive? Smart Glass is a window or skylight application that has a transformable glass to glazing effect when light or voltage is applied. There are many different types of Smart Glass, some of which will give the owners the ability to have control over the amount of light or heat that is transferred. When Smart Glass has been activated, the clear pane of glass changes into a transparent or a translucent glass pane.
