The Flexi-Glass project is a research development into glass window system using polymer layered temper glass as a transparent kinetic window surface. The individual bands of Flexi-Glass torque on its spinal axis creating gill like openings. The Flexi-Glass is processed by series of microcontrollers that output its mechanized system through servo controlled hinge units. The Flexi-Glass has more fluid effect and subtle manner of opening and closing which allows architecture to integrate with delicate precision. The Flexi-Glass is interfaced with weather sensors and actuators that can operate the window system through natural responds to the environmental conditions.
