Corning and Samsung Mobile Display have announced they've teamed up to form a new OLED glass partnership. The two firms are establishing a new joint venture to many factors special the glass substrates that will be used in the OLED display manufacturing market. The joint venture will use Corning's new Lotus Glass and Samsung's OLED display tech.
Today at CES we managed to run into an awesome 82" multi-touch display being ran by Corning. What we have on video below is actually a quick demonstration of the new 82" display showcasing its unlimited amounts of multi-touch points, stylus support, and more from the guys at Perceptive Pixel. What makes this display special is that it's the world's largest Gorilla Glass 2 display.
Corning's got their new Gorilla Glass 2 here at CES, and lets just say its really, really strong. Corning's current 1st gen Gorilla Glass is on many smartphones and devices today but their new glass is stronger, lighter, thinner, and easier to make. Gorilla Glass 2 is so strong we couldn't even get it to break under some seriously heavy loads. Check it out below!
Corning has come correct this week with their second big iteration of the glass that's almost certainly on the front of your smartphone if you purchased a device inside 2011 - Gorilla Glass 2 they call it, and details have been dropped. What you'll be getting here, basically, is a 20 percent reduction in necessary glass thickness with the same resistance to damage that made Corning's solution so popular through the last year. It's "higher functionality from thinner designs" all around this year, and Tough is still Beautiful!
Over the past handful of months, Corning has all but dominated the airwaves when it comes to must-have features on a smartphone or tablet device with their patented Gorilla Glass brand of display covering panes - today they've revealed that the second iteration, Gorilla Glass 2, will make its face known at CES 2012. This new version of the glass solution will bring with it increased functionality for devices with smaller form factors, improved touch technology, "connected devices in new application spaces," and even better durable large-format design aesthetics for you curved-corner lovers out there. The big reveal happens next week, and we're expecting some hammers to help us test it!
Though Corning's Gorilla Glass has all but dominated the review circuit when it comes to must-have features on mobile devices over the past year, it appears that Samsung and Google have opted for a different solution for their next hero device, the Galaxy Nexus. This device will play host to Google's next-generation mobile OS Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is set to have a host of powerful features that make it a force to be reckoned with. Corning has assured the public that lo, and alas, the Galaxy Nexus does not have Gorilla Glass sitting on its front.
In what's becoming a lovely trend from manufacturers all over the map, videos showing conceptual futures where technology has completely transformed the way we go about our daily lives have been emerging - this newest one comes from Microsoft who sees one magical gadget after another, after another. Earlier this month there was a video by the name of "Microsoft Office Labs Vision 2019," now there's one called "Productivity Future Vision (2011)," both of them fantastically edited and made to make devices impossible to make with today's technology seem rather possible by sight.
