very OT toilet question


    Oct 23 2006 | 2:07 pm
    I guess i have some of the attention now :-)
    I was wondering if someone could guide me in the right direction (insert funny remark)
    I was wondering on those toilets that are completly transparant and turn milky when the door is locked.
    I guess this is a kind of LCD screen technique (found some ref on that)
    I'm looking for those screen things, I suppose you dont actually need whole LCD screens to get them, but don't know where I can find them.
    Any help is most welcome best egards

      searching on 'smart glass' will get you the results your looking for.
      it is expensive though be prepared, and generally designed for large architectural installations
      back in 2001, i was able to do a performance at the 'Le Mois Multi' festival in Quebec that utilized a smart glass panel as one of the projection surfaces. it was very cool -- the techs had it switch between transparent/opaque at a full 15 fps (at least)

      thx for the reply, the thing is that I want to make a grid of those so that I can control a part of the wall that reflects the images and part of it that are still transparant, so I need it in smaller sizes and cant put individual windows so I searching for something stickable
