I, For One, Welcome Our Dystopian Gorilla Glass Overlords

Gorilla Glass is only on tablets these days but someday soon Corning’s ultrahard, transparent coating will take over our lives. And when that day happens we will be able to tap and drag almost any surface, wipe our greasy hands on a bus station wall, and even move the latest talking head from a channel bar to the main screen with a swipe of our grimy finger (provided all of the software and hardware is there, because Corning doesn’t do warez.)

This video, while charming, points to a future where transparent aluminium hasn’t been invented, which is, if my Star Trek is correct, is an impossibility. That said, wouldn’t it be nice to have this stuff in your house?
