Appealing technology

Widespread takeup of new technologies can be achieved by making the new technology appeal to consumers.

This applies to electronic textiles and to solar cells, which can be incorporated into decorative glazing with some careful design. An article about Dorothy Hardy’s glass incorporating solar cells has just been published in the Glazier magazine. This magazine gives news from the Worshipful Company of Glaziers and Painters of Glass, which is ‘dedicated to the preservation of stained glass and the skills necessary to produce this beautiful art form.’
