While this is clearly one company’s vision and essentially a long-form commercial for a future filled with Corning’s products, watching this was far too compelling to let that keep me from sharing it. After all, scientists and visionaries in corporate settings are just as much a part of our community as academics. And, boy, have these people come up with some interesting possibilities. I think I see the iPad 4 or 5 in there somewhere . . .
Of course, Corning came up with the now-famous “gorilla glass” used in the iOS devices and others — durable, touch-sensitive, and lightweight. Apparently, it was just the beginning for them.
