Corning expands its vision of a glass future

Corning Vision of the Future

Nearly a year ago, Corning put out a video called “A Day Made of Glass.” In it, they showed a future that was enhanced by the use of touchscreens and other variations of glass products that seems less like “Minority Report” and more like a not-so-distant reality. This week, they’ve added to the video by releasing another titled “A Day Made of Glass 2: Same Day. Expanded Corning Vision.”

First, here’s the original video:

It was inspiring to see the potential, but didn’t quite take the world to the next level that many of these technologies promise. Now, their most recent video finishes the job with kid-attacking dinosaurs and all.

The updated vision starts with Handheld Display Glass that is thin, damage resistant, and 3-D projection-ready. As we continue through, innovations such as electrochromic glass, architectural display glass, and automotive display glass with importable themes (hijacked by the kids while they wait for their father) point towards a more-robust enhancement of life through glass.

How far into the future is Corning looking? As quickly as technology is advancing, we may be looking at years and not decades.
