I grew up close to Corning. From the sleepy little town it's based in, you'd never guess at the world changing tech the company has put out, but it does just that. :)

a lot of this stuff was done by microsoft a good few years ago when they were doing their "house of the future" stuff. What's even better than cornings glass wall panel tv? MS's electronic paint that makes the whole wall the TV. :) They took quite a few cues from MS ideas. Nothing wrong with that though as its still awesome.. and we are still waiting for commercial use of any of it.. lol.

I think that's what people used for the iPhone 5 rumor, the similarity is incredible, my guess the render was based on this one

farenheit 451 anyone? anyway, hopefully my next upgrade will have this glass. i think this ultra clear glass opens up more possibilities for the clear solar panels that were shown off at CTIA. more sunlight gets through so more energy is absorbed and less energy used by the backlight. cool.
