Corning is all set to ready with a series of new technologies to create buzz in the Consumer Electronics Show, in Las Vegas next week.
The 163-year old glass maker will feature the advancements of Gorilla Glass, and Thunderbolt and USB 3 Optical Cables, used to connect electronic devices and computers. With antimicrobial and anti-reflective Gorilla Glass, the Company has plans to show off the large-format applications such as notebook and all-in-one touch screens.
“Corning is always innovating, and we’re excited to showcase a set of technologies that use glass to improve the user experience both visually and technically,” Wendell Weeks, chairman, chief executive officer, and president said in a statement.
They will demo video and data transfers at “incredible speeds and over longer distances” with Thunderbolt. Just like the Gorilla Glass, its first all-optical fiber cables are also tough enough to be “bent, squeezed, and tangled,” according to the company.
Moreover, the glass maker is also planning to kick off 3D Gorilla Glass production with Taiwan-based G-Tech Optoelectronics Corp. later this year. The new 3D glass would be uniform and would cover the smartphone from three-sides even the devices is molded in different shapes.
In all likelihood, the CES 2014 will be a breakthrough event with lots of smartphones, tablets and accessories.
