Despite those possibilities, it's unclear when or if Nippon's technology will make it to a tablet near you.

I foresee something like this going "As Seen On TV" and for sale in every check-out line, soon.

I'd pay a lot to get rid of glare.

Hehe Matthew, I now have a mental image of Nippon's production line having a guy in a robe with a tome in hand casting incantations on the pieces of glass as they go past on the conveyor belt.

I don't think how could this be implemented into buildings or other infrastructure. The idea of Matte Glass is to decrease glare which save energy requirements to shine things brighter behind a display. Its kinda silly if this was used as a door or a window. just think how many people will just hit into an invisible wall? 0_o

I wonder if there is any technical reason why this technology couldn't be incorporated with gorilla glass. That would be a good result if it could/

This technology could make some really cool aquariums.
Now that would be awesome! As long as the water was properly filtered you would really struggle to see where the water is and it would seem like the fish are floating in mid air!

If they start making this glass for home and commercial windows, women everywhere will be doing a Tippi Hedren impersonation.

They aren't going to use it as building windows. The windows on skyscrapers for sure are highly reflective on purpose. Reflect the heat, keep the cool in. This would just let all the heat in.

I've not seen anyone mention a scratch resistant factor.

If it scratches easy, I wouldn't care how invisible it is.

I guess that combining scratch resistant layers would mess up the anti-reflectivity of the technology. Lets hope that they have considered this and combined an element of anti-scratch/damage resistancy to this product.
