    Glass roofs on cars have evolved somewhat from the humble, retractable sunroof to the sleek and very stylish panoramic glass roof of the Tesla Model 3 and S electric sedans.

    Michigan-based Rivian, which came out of stealth mode and wowed crowds last year with its all-electric ute (pickup) and SUV at the LA Auto Show, is taking it one step further.

    According to comments made by the EV maker – which is yet to confirm a release date for its electric offerings, the all-electric R1S SUV will have an optional electrochromic glass roof.

    Electro-what, I hear you say?

    An electrochromic glass roof – otherwise known as “smart glass”, it can change its light transmissions properties when a small voltage is applied to the window, turning it from transparent to opaque.

    Amazing how long things take to either get on the market or to find a useful purpose to create a market. I’m sure I remember a similar glass way back on Tomorrow’s World.

    I think it has been about for a while now and is used in some high end houses with large windows in toilets and shower rooms to blank out those pesky Paparazzi.
