The Experimental House IN4M is positioned at the crossroads of sociological and technical innovation by the use of new and high tech materials and planning methodologies. In combination with ecological timber products and recycled products from straw different types of materials have been integrated into this House of the Future. The Smart Energy Glass, for instance, is based on a liquid crystal technology and can be switched to different degrees of transparency. The energy for this is generated by the glass itself and the light transmission ranges from transparent to opaque and translucent – different g-value included.
