A new video from Aero-Gear demonstrates the potential of sapphire screens. In the video we see a concrete block rubbed against a sapphire screen protector, and yet it comes out of the match unscratched.
Samsung continues to consolidate its position in the electronics manufacturing industry with a deal involving Corning, maker of Gorilla Glass and other specialty products.
Corning has demonstrated its super-transparent glass that actually kills bacteria. Are we all going to be safe from dirty touchscreens and phone surfaces?
In the future, economies of scale could bring down the price of sapphire, making it possible for manufacturers to use it on smartphones and other devices.

Much like the first edition print of any comic book hero’s tale, Corning Glass was born of a science experiment gone wrong. In 1952 a scientist at Corning placed a piece of photosensitive glass in a furnace for testing. At some point the furnace skyrocketed from 600 degrees Celsius to 900 degrees. Expecting a ruined sample, the scientist was surprised to find an opaque sheet of material rather than a melted blob of molten mess.
The third generation of Corning’s Gorilla Glass is going to be demoed at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week. It’ll be even stronger!
