‘3D’ Gorilla Glass coming this year

Corning has announced an exciting new development to the ubiquitous Gorilla Glass found on most modern smartphones. Citing a new 3D glass-forming technology, Corning says it will have glass in “dramatic form factors” commercially available in 2014.

The obvious application for the 3D-shaped Gorilla Glass lies in the coming wave of curved smartphones, which will be able to bend and twist even farther without a loss in strength or a gain in thickness. Corning also indicated that the 3D-shaped Gorilla Glass will be particularly useful in the development of durable and lightweight wearable technology.

Corning slid the announcement out just before CES, so here’s hoping we’ll see a few devices taking advantage of the new Gorilla Glass next week.

    wouldnt bendable gorilla glass be the same as just thick plastic at this point?

    Bummer. I was hoping they were going to make a parallax panel.

    Would this be implemented in the Galaxy S5?

    Sounds like more 3d nonsense. Warning tech companies, consumers are dumb but there’s limits to how dumb most consumers are. This is why 3d tv is a failure. You’ve been warned. Put out a gimmick AGAIN and it will fail, AGAIN.
