In mobile we mostly recognize Corning for their fortified Gorilla Glass, which is very popular for smartphones and tablets. It’s great at helping us keep our devices free of scratches or cracks, but Corning does much more than Gorilla Glass. They have just announced Fibrance, a product that will literally light your devices up.
Paired with our tech, Fibrance could become extensions of our smart life.
These are not exactly mobile-exclusive applications of the product, but Fibrance can make our devices and accessories much smarter. Paired with our tech, Fibrance could become extensions of our “smart life”. A perfect example would be light notifications and status updates.
These fiber optic cables could even let you know if your bluetooth headphones are paired, playing music, running out of bluetooth reach and the like. Because they are very thin and flexible, I could even see them being used as notification lights in current smartphones. Fibrance could surround the edges of our smartphones and tablets, for example.
Corning has the reputation and resources to take Fibrance to astonishing levels.
More details will surely come, so let’s keep our eyes open for this one. Fibrance certainly looks promising. What kind of products would you like to see coming with Fibrance lighting?
