Gorilla Glass is found on many tablets and smartphones, which helps in the survivability of your tech from everyday life. The company has announced today new technology that will see them enter the wearable tech space, mainly with smart watches.
The 3D glass will allow it to conform to your wrist and allow manufacturing to product watches that have screens bending around your wrist. Traditional smart watches like the Toq, or Pebble have simple, non-bendable screens. Its newly available technique conforms to unusual designs without adding bulk or losing strength.
Corning said in a statement that “Corning’s 3D-forming technology can achieve precise tolerances and high throughput on a platform that is more economical than alternative two-mold forming methods. This technology uses Gorilla Glass of uniform thickness, assisting designers to introduce thinner and lighter devices and leverage the emergence of conformable displays for mobile and wearable applications.”
Gorilla Glass is the primary company Apple deals with for their gadgets and many other companies rely on them for their durable screen technology.
