What kind of uses can you think of for Willow Glass?
becker 1 year ago
I am pretty blown away by Corning's new Willow Glass, which is thin and flexible display glass. So flexible that, according to the information in the press release, you can roll it into a 2" round tube/ 5cm radius before stressing it. For me, as a motorcyclist, the first thing that came to mind was that it would make a really cool in helmet display, if you can make it see through, and if not, it would still make a killer "glass" cockpit. I would love to be able to roll up my tablet and stick it in my pocket. I'm sure that the real uses are more likely to be for gently curved smartphones/pads, but I live in the real world everyday, wishes are nice a nice diversion now and then. What other kinds of uses could could there be for a flexible display material like Willow Glass?
