Kinestral Technologies

Founded: 2010

“Imagine a window that gently wakes you up each morning. It was tinted dark during the night to give you privacy and to block out street lights so you can sleep soundly – and when it‘s time, it slowly clears to let in daylight.

Imagine walking into your office with floor-to-ceiling windows that block the glare but not the view that you worked so hard to earn. Imagine working in a room that has so much natural light that you don‘t need artificial lighting. And imagine commanding your interior wall to tint when you need a little privacy.”
