"Smart Glass: Options for Creating a Sustainable, Glare-free Environment" by Josh Hogan, vice-president of sales operations for Halio North America/ Advances in electrochromic technologies have given building owners new options for maintaining their views and daylight, which studies have shown to boost vitality, productivity, and improve sleep by helping people keep in sync with their circadian rhythms.
