Samsung Galaxy Tab's Gorilla Glass is so strong that it is still intact after the device is  shot at point-blank range in a video
A video depicting the Samsung Galaxy Tab's Gorilla Glass durability shows how the device is shot with a carbon dioxide powered gas gun. Not only the Gorilla Glass survives to tell the tale, but it remains intact after the encounter.

You can see the video below and it simply pays tribute to the Corning's product, especially when you compare what happens with the glass in the next clip. That indicates we shouldn't fear for our devices, because they are more than able to withstand all these accidents that tend to happen to them. The dive that the Motorola DEFY took in our review is another example of the trend. And the best news of all is that these upgrades don't take anything from the devices' capabilities.

I wonder if the screen protected he lied about had anything to do with it. He said t was just a silicone case but the air bubbles in it are very obvious. Oh and note to stupid people that wanna try this: if the BEEBEEs are not penetrating the glass they're bouncing off. Meaning be careful. You don't want your mom to be right when she said you'd put out an eye.

The silicon he referred to was the casing for the back. The air bubbles are resultant from a poor screen protector job. He could have wore a protected eyeglasses or a regular eyeglasses while doing the demo, but those BB's bouncing off are actually won't be that fast to actually blind his eye from that distance anyway.
