Bio-inspired design may lead to more energy efficient windows

Researchers describe a novel process to cut down on heat loss during the winter and keep buildings cool during the summer. Their 'bio-inspired approach to thermal control for cooling (or heating) building window surfaces' calls for attaching optically clear, flexible elastomer sheets, bonded to regular glass window panes.
