With A Simple Pane of Glass, Phillips Has Engineered a 3DTV That Blends Into Any Decor
The future is now when it comes to glass in technology. Gone are the days of a bulky big-screen TVs. The emphasis now, is making TVs thinner, stylish, and more along the lines of eye-candy, rather than eye-sores. And maybe the technology is not so simple, but the design is minimalistic and very modern — in what is yet another example of how glass and technology are melding. These Phillips DesignLine TVs don’t even require an installation, just lean them up against the wall, and turn them on.
Look for the DesignLine televisions be available in Q2 2013 in Europe in both 46″ and 55″ screen sizes.

There are 16 other great tips to follow, when designing your shower — these pointers will help ensure a low-stress, cost-effective installation.
How It Feels [through Glass] — Google’s Latest ‘Project Glass’ Video
The first Google Glass video released last year, was essentially a really high-tech simulation — it was not real world footage, it was an overlay on top of real footage. At the end of the day, that was the huge criticism with the promotion of a project of this magnitude. This time around, Google has released a new Project Glass video (also known as Google Glass), with a bit of a difference: “All video footage captured through Glass.”
All of the video in this promotional video is captured through the actual Google Glass glasses. Not only that, but to show how close these prototypes are to a real production-line product, Google is opening up a very limited beta test, for those selected, with $1,500 to spare. Additionally, they’ve released promotional photos on their page, showing off the durability and the color-ways of the glasses. Well, color us impressed! It’s amazing to see the Google Glass project maturing so quickly, and it’s looking more and more like Google may one day out-”Apple”, Apple.
Dulles Glass and Mirror is proud to share with you our latest video detailing our Frameless Glass Shower Doors. You’d be surprised just how easy it is to choose your configuration and request a quote for your very own, luxurious frameless shower door.
Your frameless shower door is fully customizable from the configuration, to the glass, or the hardware.
There are 4 basic frameless glass shower door configurations available:
A single shower door is one of the most popular and simple shower door configurations. And it can easily accommodate most openings from 22″ to 36″ inches wide.
The next option is an inline shower door — inline shower doors are ideal when the opening is wider than 36″ and the opening is a single straight line.
Third, is the 90 Degree Shower Door. This option is used in the corner of the bathroom, where two glass walls meet at a 90 degree angle to form a square or rectangle enclosure.
The last shower door option is the neo-angle shower door. Here, glass panels come together at an angle to form a diamond shape.
The shower design process begins with choosing one of these four configurations: neo angle, 90-degree, inline, and single shower door.
Once you have chosen your configuration, click on the ‘view all options’ button to see all available options for your configuration.
After finding the frameless shower door that best matches your space, all you have to do is to provide us with approximate measurements of your shower space. This will help us provide you with an approximate quote for your project.
Don’t worry — once we have your approval, our trained installation professionals will come to your location for exact measurement of your shower space. So go ahead and send us your request — your new shower door is just days away.
