Glass – What Will They Think of Next

Corning Incorporated offers a fascinating look at the future in “A Day Made of Glass … Made Possible by Corning”.  Just when you thought that granite and stainless steel were the cats meow, now glass is the way of the future.  Glass counter tops and glass front appliances will soon incorporate electronics making them an active part of our lifestyle.  From the glass mirror in our bathrooms, to the glass stove top in our kitchens, you’ll be able to connect “with what we want…when we want…anywhere…and with great ease” courtesy of Corning Glass.

If you remember, it was just yesterday that we used manual typewriters and carbon paper, sent urgent communications by cable or telex, eavesdropped on the party line, and watched black and white television with only three VHF and maybe two UHF channels.  According to Corning:

The video depicts a world in which interactive glass surfaces help you stay connected through seamless delivery of real-time information – whether you’re working, shopping, eating, or relaxing.

Once upon a time a home was considered tricked out (did we use that word back then?) if it had a roof mounted rotary antenna, if the kitchen had two (not one) wall ovens and the sink included a garbage disposer.  Today’s homes will soon be considered out of date!  Buyers will favor homes updated with interactive and information bearing glass walls and surfaces.  So, step through the looking glass to see just how electronic glass will become incorporated into the homes we sell in the future.
