Switchable Glass natural state is fully opaque and prevents you seeing through it, but when an electronic switch is pressed, it instantly becomes completely clear.  This glass makes clear glass turn opaque.

Switchable Glass is laminated glass, consisting of two sheets of Grade A safety glass permanently bonded together with a liquid crystal inter-layer. 

When you apply an electrical voltage across this liquid crystal inter-layer, the crystals align in the same direction making the glass clear.  Then when the power is turned off, it triggers a change of state and the crystals randomly overlap, making the glass opaque.

You can control the obscureness of the glass, while still letting light pass through and between rooms.
