PHYSEE was founded by two applied physicists,Ferdinand Grapperhaus, and Willem Kesteloo in 2014 who, during their graduation, found a way to generate electricity with transparent glass. According to the founders, they use creative, physical angles when looking at the buildings to see how they can optimise, using smart and sustainable innovations.
How SmartSkin technology works?
The SmartSkin technology is a combination of sensors, solar cells, and battery system integrated into the window frames. This technology analyses data, such as temperature, light, and air quality, using a self-learning algorithm that independently controls the building’s climate installations (such as sun blinds, lighting, ventilation, and air conditioning).
“We spend 90% of our time in buildings and for a more sustainable future, we need to develop and use them in innovative ways, both at home and in the office”, says Grapperhaus.
