Tinted head lights

This may be a terrible idea, but I need to tell someone. You guys know that material that they make eye glasses out of that turn dark in the sun light and turn into sunglasses? Couldn't we make head light tint out of that? Like they get dark in the day when you aren't using them and not at night when you are. Again, this could be terrible idea as I've never tinted headlights before, but it just came to me

Sounds like an expensive proposition. Additionally I'm not sure how well the light would shine out

Sounds like a good idea in theory, but as pointed out, it would be too expensive most likely. I don't think it would change the lighting any.

And btw, it's called Transitions.

Pretty sure they have a tinting film available that does this.

If they do, and it's not ridiculously expensive, I want it.

Transitioning lenses is what you are looking for but that is Glass Technology I believe and not a Film material. I could be wrong though.

If you turn the lights on will it cause the material to darken? Or does it have to do with UV light?

Well I am not 100% certain, this is just info from what I gathered from my eye doctor when I got my transitioning lenses.

He advised that it's mostly done by the UV Rays but certain bulbs can also cause the transition but it wont be as dark as when UV Rays hit it.
