Glass Future

Corning Incorporated, a world leader in specialty glass and ceramics, works to develop interactive glass that will transform ordinary surfaces into sophisticated electronic devices. These new technologies could allow you to organize your daily schedule with a few touches on your bathroom mirror. They could allow you to video-chat with relatives on your kitchen counter. "This world," says Corning Chairman and CEO Wendell Weeks, "is being created as we speak."

Wendell explains that “this is a visual world – so transparency is a must.” Corning believes that glass is the essential enabling material of the future, and is investing in creating specialty glass materials that are flexible, durable, can endure tough environmental conditions, as well as have an inviting, touch-friendly aesthetic. The glass must be strong while remaining thin and lightweight; it must be able to enable complex electronic circuits and nano functionality; and, it must be environmentally friendly.

Corning Inc. has been involved in materials science and process engineering for over 160 years.
