They say their conductive polymer will be "prices competititvely" with ITO even though its said to be 10-times faster. Besides transparent widow defoggers there are plenty of other apps in the making too,

General high conductivity transparent materials applications

I guess this puts this conductive polymer into a high performance category with regards conductance versus transparency, regardless of its application target, and at a reasonable cost alternative to indium tin oxide to boot. This true?

The automotive glass de-fogging, as well as transparent antennas caught my eye. Making both these applications transparent would be great.

The mountain had formed millions of years before when two tektronix plates collided.
