Corning’s specialty glass is finding myriad new applications in industries such as retail
Corning first introduced its vision for advanced glass technologies back in 2011 with its “A Day Made of Glass” video series. Since the series’ launch, we’ve seen the Glass Age come to life through collaboration across numerous industries, showing the potential for advanced applications enabled by specialty glass.
In the latest installment of “Inspired by Glass,” Corning joins forces with MemoMi on its MemoryMirror? which utilizes Corning’s transparent display technology and features Corning? Gorilla? Glass. The application of a special functional film on the thin, durable Gorilla Glass surface creates a transparent display that is redefining the shopping experience.
“To stay competitive, physical brick-and-mortar stores need to bring more of the interactive digital experience one would find online right into the store,” said Ryan Flannery, manager of Exploratory Markets and Technologies at Corning. “Gorilla Glass, with its advanced touch capabilities and transparent display technology, is enabling a more dynamic and intuitive in-store shopping experience.”
