Make your home today the home of tomorrow is the brand commitment made by SONTE, who launched a futuristic solution for replacing natural shade with digitally controlled lighting. The system consists of a smart film which can go from transparent to non-transparent in less than a second. How does this apply to home design? Well… the film can be retro-fit onto any glass surface everywhere in the house, resulting in endless possibilities. And for all of you hi-tech enthusiasts out there, the catch is you can control the level of transparency through your smartphone, by simply downloading the the iOS / Android app for free.

The installation process only takes a few minutes (adjusting the film size to your window, then applying a prototype clip). You can use the digital shading system on your interior windows, in order to adjust sun power in your home and on a dividing glass wall for privacy. Our favorite benefit is the projection ability. Turn off the lights and enjoy your home theater, or play your favorite game anywhere in the house, super-sized.

“Curtains have been around for thousands of years without much improvement,” said Bernard Kwan, CEO and Co-founder of SONTE. “The small advances that have been made, such as motorized shades and smart glass, can be extremely expensive and complex to install. With SONTE Film, we set out to revolutionize the industry of windows and curtains to make digital shade technology affordable and easy to use for all.” The project has taken off on Kickstarter and we assume it will reach its objective in the following days. So… how would you comment on this new digital shading idea? Would you consider giving up your curtains for a a more high-tech lighting adjustment system?
