Report: Mercedes to bring Magic Sky Control to side windows?

Filed under: Convertible, Government/Legal, Technology, Mercedes-Benz

We've had the chance to sample Mercedes-Benz's so-called Magic Sky Control technology in both the SL and SLK roadsters, and it's a pretty clever party trick. The technology can turn the overhead roof panel in either of the two-seaters from transparent to opaque by energizing the light-blocking crystals sandwiched in the glass. By electrifying the crystals, they reorder themselves, varying the amount of light that's let through the glass roof panel.

We've seen this electrochromatic glass technology before in the Ferrari 575
