The glass conversion was done by Cabriotec.de in Germany but I don’t think they are around anymore.  I don’t think Francesco is around here much if at all anymore either.  My understanding was that you unzipped the glass on 3 sides and it hinged on the bottom.  Look at the last ten seconds of this video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MVgoxhu7tm4  and I think you will get the idea.

Such a lame video showing what? Where does this zipper window come from? He's showing he glues in the window with what? Krazy glue? Whats the glass from?

Obviously found a similar window for another make and model like this Audi example, but this one has heated glass!!

I have an idea for a custom glass window installation from your link here NFB. It probably wouldn't  be to difficult to make a glass pocket with a zipper concept and attach this pocket window to an existing Smart top. All that would be needed is to source the glass window of similar size and curvature. It would be ideal for an exact match but if the glass is a little bigger it probably wouldn't really matter since the top opening would overlap the glass. You would just need to make sure the bottom of the glass lines up with the opening to reduce environmental dirt build up. Now to source the glass from a knowledgeable auto glass shop.
