I thought this, or something similar, was already available.

This looks different than the argon gas, which has a frosted look at the flick of a switch.

Yeah, electrochromatic glass has been available to builders for a couple of years now. It was introduced at one building industry show as being ideal for RESTROOM installations in public buildings (!) -- the pitch was that if the door is opaque, the room's occupied.

Company I used to work for (about four years ago) was in the same building as Paul Allen's investment company in downtown Seattle. One of the secretaries took me on a tour one morning and they had walls made of this same type of material, except it could go from transparent to completely opaque rather like using a dimmer switch on lights.
