The world of aftermarket window tinting companies could soon come to an end if Honda‘s latest patent is anything to go by.
The Japanese marque recently patented an advanced self-tinting window, which is touch-sensitive and could be used on any vehicle, reports Auto Guide.
The window works when a user touches it and drags their finger down to a desired point, tinting only that section of the window. Alongside being a massive convenience to adjust the tint when required, this could spell the end of flip-down sunvisors as it could be used on a vehicle’s windshield.
Potentially the only downside of the self-tinting window is that it can only be altered when the vehicle is stationary.
Nevertheless, the idea is certainly intriguing but it isn’t yet known if or when Honda will make it a reality.
