Invisible Wood

Invisible wood has created a lot of buzz around the internet world. Some think it is the best thing since sliced bread while others are less impressed. When it comes to internet fights I am not one to read (don’t we all say that?) but the question of whether this is practical for use or just a cool experiment has me intrigued. 

Is it environmentally friendly?

Could it take the place of glass? For example windows?

Transparent or translucent?

Do we see this taking off in the future?

You do the math and decide.


Here are some articles about the subject that leave me with mixed emotions about this so called 'invisible wood.'
