One company’s vision of a ‘Minority Report’ future

The rise of the touchscreen, mobile devices and tablets has made us all aware of the importance of glass in the future direction of technology.

Just how important it might be is highlighted in this remarkable video from Corning (yes, the company behind the glass used for iPad, Zune HD, Surface 2.0 and other devices)

Corning asks:

  • Can you imagine organizing your daily schedule with a few touches on your bathroom mirror?
  • Chatting with far-away relatives through interactive video on your kitchen counter?
  • Reading a classic novel on a whisper-thin piece of flexible glass?

Corning says it’s not just thinking about these scenarios, but it’s researching how to make them real.

In the meantime, whilst we’re all waiting for the technology in ‘Minority Report’ to make its way into our lives, settle for this intriguing video: “A Day Made Of Glass.”
