AnandY, glad this was helpful info for you. I think it's a good example of what can be done with enough resources: brains, money, expertise and time. As far as I've been able to determine, this glass is unique. It will be interesting to see how this affects future designs.

The super –thin flexible glass is definitely a plus for Corning. As one would have it, it will bring about a few changes that will see better mobile phone covers as well as other electronic applications given that it is made adaptable to high-volume as well as low-cost manufacturing processes. It will also come as quite appealing to most customers given that it can be wrapped around electronic products owing to it being thin

Ann the update is fantastic. The extra thin glass can be used in an array of design work to enable an improved functioning of the devices. The compact nature of the glass will enable more flexibility in the field of design.

It was interesting to find out that, since roll-to-roll manufacturing is very new in companies that use glass in their products, this is turning out to be as big a deal as the material itself, maybe bigger.

Thanks, Al. I did this update because the first time I reported on this, I was very interested in what would happen after some of Corning's customers started playing with the material and figuring out what they could do with it.

You know, Nadine, after I wrote that response to TJ, I started thinking about road rage. I think you're right about that. And glad you liked the article.

Oh Dear!  That could get really ugly.  Road rage is bad enough.

This could lead to a lot of very cool things.  Flexible, more mobile solar panels in new shapes!   I can see beautiful little panels across a cityscape.

Thanks for the update Ann.  Much appreciated!

I find the conformable concept interesting in general. Here we have conformable displays. Over in flexible electronics, as we reported here http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1392&doc_id=265097 there are conformable printed electronics.

That's funny, TJ--paints quite a picture, and makes me think of several times I've wished I had a flashing billboard attached to my car so I could tell the other driver what I thought.
