CES: Gorilla Glass

By: Daniel Lichterman January 12th, 2011

At CES, Corning(yes, the same Corning that makes Pyrex) had a large booth displaying their latest product, Gorilla Glass. Gorilla Glass is a new product that has been released on a number of smartphones and other electronic devices instead of the standard glass or polycarbonate screens. It is extremely hard to break and scratch, which makes it perfect for touchscreens. In their demo at CES, they were repeatedly knocking it with a metal ball.

Gorilla Glass is present on Samsung Epic 4G and the Samsung Galaxy Tab; a full list of devices can be found on their website.
