The company has always used CES to announce its newest innovation and this year is no different. Shifting away from mobile devices, Corning says the “Glass Age” has arrived, bringing its technology to different categories, including automotive, retail, and the home.
Corning already announced plans to use Gorilla Glass on the upcoming Ford GT Supercar 2017, but it also wants to open up new market opportunities, with plans to help power future connected car consoles, enable touch-powered retail storefronts, and enhance the home and office with entertainment and information sharing.
The exact details of how the Glass Age will unfold are space but a teaser asks us if “we are ready?”
Dr. Jeffrey Evenson, Corning’s SVP and CSO, said, “As we extend the technical and design capabilities of precision glass, Corning continues to deliver innovative technologies that enable more connected, interactive, and customizable lifestyles. We’re excited to engage consumers and industry partners in a set of new application opportunities inspired by our vision for the future – all made possible by Corning.”
