WINDOW “Glass, which initially seemed the perfect partner for the window, took over entirely... the former accoutrements of the window - shading devices, bars for security, handles with which to open the window - are internalised in the glass itself, becoming invisible, or discarded entirely.. Glass controls solar gain and radiation, provides unrivalled insulation, generates energy, and conveys digitised information... Fewer and fewer windows can be opened, offering enormous uninterrupted views of the world but no physical contact with it..” ADDED ATTRIBUTES The window (or glass) is already self tinting based on external outputs, windows can already open on their own , they can already control an environment based on external uses. Perhaps the discussion of windows should turn to the outcome rather than the sensors. If sensors can already control the tint of windows, will they also be able to control the image of the outside world? A commercial data holder might use this space to market a new product whilst an authoritarian government might use the space as a means to control what is viewed.
