This is great news for mobile phone users that like the extra protection afforded by the awesome Gorilla Glass by Corning. Apparently, they shared a teaser that they will be unveiling their next gen Gorilla Glass 2 at CES this year. The new glass tech supposedly keeps its same level of damage-resistant toughness, but comes in a thinner and lighter package. Additionally, it further facilitates "broader touch technology penetration", which basically means that touch-based gestures will be easier to detect and more refined through the glass.
Here are just a few of the demonstrations that Corning is supposedly planning on having at the tradeshow this year:
- An 82-inch advanced multi-touch LCD display prototype featuring Corning Gorilla Glass as a durable, touch-sensitive, and elegant cover glass.
- Touch-enabled automobile interior and home appliance center simulators demonstrating the enhanced user interface experience that thin, durable glass can enable in new design applications.
- A centerpiece, Gorilla Glass-covered video wall, flanked by Gorilla Glass fabricated sound speakers, projecting the latest in Corning specialty glass technology news.
