Why cars dont have electrochromic glasses?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone thought how cool it will be to have dark glasses at day and clear through night, like electrochromic sunglasses?

Why car  manufacturers aren't going for electrochromic glasses in cars? What's stopping them? Cost, law, safety.....?

There are some cars that have dark glasses some version of old Cherokee's and old rx300s have them from company but people here go crazy hitting it with key and saying dark tint is not allowed...my reply is if can remove it then remove I have no issues...

That electro thing might fail at the wrong time and impair visibility could be...

This is very old tech in eye wear. I rem having my first electrochromic glasses in 1997 as a fun. It's mostly used in optician glasses so person using eyeglasses need not to change glasses in sun and it will change its tint in few seconds.

It's called photochromatic glasses. Never heard the term of electrochromic glasses.

Photochromic to be precise, I thought its same tech that changes color with presence of light.

I didnt meant for electronically controlled tinting that barry was doing earlier with Ghost Tints. That's too messy for cars and its operation.

Well photo chronic and electrochromic are two totally different things. Electrochromic rearview mirrors have been around for a while now
