I saw this link on the CraftWeb board to a new product... a sort of see-through concrete that can be used in buildings. The possibilities are endless. Amazing!

How 'bout this? Align the glass fibres at a small angle. Invert every second row so the image gets sliced and shifted.

Dibs on the royalties! :lol:

But yes, VERY cool material. I'm curious to get my hands on it myself... for no reason than just curiosity. Their website does have some cool pics.

From what I understand, they will have an exhibit in DC later this year.
