Slow glass

Saw this article and was reminded of an old scifi story - wonder how long it will take for science to catch up with fiction....
Power Saving Concept System - Lightway | HardGeek

Now the story, Light of other days ...

and a bit of Wiki:
Slow light - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That Wiki article made me feel really stupid.

Cool stuff and great story - thanks for posting. Interesting that we are taught the speed of light is a constant, however, it looks as though there are materials that have light capacity properties, like heat capacity properties, so depending on that material and its characteristic capacity property, it can 'store' that energy. Very interesting.
