This stuff sounds great. I wonder when it'll be available and how much it costs?

3M are great innovators!
Their corporate culture encourages creativity.
Leave it to them to come up with an idea like that one.
Let us know if you find more info.

The 3m website below lists automotive, residential and commerical window tinting. Also has a "find dealer" function

The shop that installed my tinting is already working with manufactures that produce films with only light shade tinting and still reduces heat. They install all over the country and had to come up with solutions to satisfy the laws in all of them. Check out there detailed discussion at http://detailwiz.com/window-tint-shades/
I haven't asked, but, they are probably already working with the 3M product. There is a good price information on the site as well here http://detailwiz.com/window-tinting-prices .

Window film is a great way to block UV rays and heat. It also can deter theft by making it harder for people to see inside your vehicle or your home. I recently installed film on my bedroom windows and now the lights from the nearby street don't bother me while I sleep.
