After seeing the post about Microsoft Labs' Transparent 3D Monitor, reader Sean Michael Newton pointed us to a video by Corning yes, the people behind Corning Ware titled A Day Made of Glass, showcasing a future where technology, touch-sensitive surfaces (made of glass, of course) intertwine with each other and are a normal part of our daily lifescape. In other words, well be living in a giant iPad.
From the Corning website:
Glass is the essential material enabling this new world. The displays and touch surfaces of the future will require materials that are tough, yet thin and lightweight; that can enable complex electronic circuits and nano functionality; that can scale for very large applications, and that also have a cool, touch-friendly aesthetic.
The real-time information also depends on communications networks with massive bandwidth capacity meaning new opportunities for Corning to apply its optical communications expertise to customers tough challenges.
Cornings advancements in sleek, flexible, touch-sensitive, and damage-resistant glass materials are the solution for not just the near future, but today. The company is engaged in research and partnership opportunities that will help make the vision in both videos a reality.
