Corning’s Gorilla Glass has a new competitor. Asahi Glass is Japan’s largest glass maker and they’ve created a product called “Dragontrail” that will be used in mobile devices and tablets. This new glass is ultra-strong, scratchproof, can take random drops without shattering and in the video they show how the glass can bend and withstand 60kg of direct pressure. Apparently Dragontrail will go into production in 2012.

    It’s “Dragontrail”, with an R :P

    Definitely, trail, but in our capitalistic society, competition is always welcome.

  • Jeremy R

    Is this equal to or better than Gorilla Glass? I would love a comparisson, statistical or otherwise. Also, why wait an entire year to produce this stuff? They should capitalize on it now, don’t they know that the world will end in 2012? Sheesh.

    Cool. Looks promising, would like to see a direct comparison.

    side note: I like how your own profanity censoring system was used against you in s h a ttering. lol. loosen it up a lil

  • Jake

    Why is shattering censored?

    • Colin

      Because “Shat” from Shattering is the past tense of “Shitting”

  • Jake

    I didn’t know “hat” was a bad word.

  • AL

    they should’ve called it Dragonscale.

  • Keith

    Good grief you cannot say s h a t. I thought this was supposed to be a Canadian site.

      Tell me about it, I once had “i_d_i_o_t” censored, and I wasn’t slagging a specific individual.

  • Matt

    I like the part where he drops the glass from waist height onto carpet. Dangerous…
