[CNET] Cornings mind blowing concept of a glass future - Page 2

post #11 of 41
Neat to see sci-fi becoming reality, but to be honest, I think transparent displays would be incredibly distracting/inconvenient.

Although I'm sure that there's some kind of super-oleophobic coating that they're cooking up to make fingerprints a non-issue. rolleyes.gif

Btw - the solar panels are still ugly, and conspicuous. I'm also rather disappointed that electrochromic glass and giant touch screens are one of the only things that they've managed to realize. Their fiber optics sound far more promising.

I'm enthusiastic about the school scene though - imagine how much paper we could save by using high technology in schools. The cost would be immense though, in terms of money alone. Not to mention... glass is very nice when it's shiny and new, but I highly doubt that corning has a solution that will protect its products from fingerprints, scratches, staining and all of the other afflictions which come to affect glass. I suspect that the real picture is quite a bit different from the one they're painting.

Corning is trying to sell us on the concept of clean, durable, shiny, immortal, functional glass that always looks new. In reality, I find glass to be a problematic surface. The screen on my OLED monitor always has prints and dust on it; the windshield on my truck has a plethora of tiny scratches and cracks.

They've still got work to do.


TL;DR: The future is not going to look like the interior of Tipoca City. It's going to look like Coruscant.

I think that the topic of this video might be "glass" due to the fact that he mentions it once every 10 seconds incase you might have missed it the first 14576 times

The biggest issue we have to get around is capitalism. In order to get that level of connectivity the technology has to level off somewhere, which will never happen if all companies are interested in is getting people to buy their latest product. If schools tried to switch from paper and pen to a pure tablet environment, the next year another company would have a faster, sleeker, product that conveniently doesn't work with existing tech.


As a software developer I thought the video was interesting from a technical point of view. I think I could probably make most of it happen myself, but its only going to work if we standardize everything for the long term. I'm not talking 3-4 years down the road, I'm thinking 10-20. If you told parents that if they spent $400 on a tablet for their 5 year old, that it would last them 12 years without becoming outdated or obsolete, and gave them a free warranty for the entire duration their child was in school, then I'm thinking most would jump at the chance, but that would mean any changes to the system would have to occur incrementally over decades. Any major technological innovations would have to be slowly phased, since the high school students would all be using decade old hardware. Imagine trying to even browse the net today on a 400 MHz single core Pentium III laptop with a 500mb hard drive and 64mb ram.

i dont see glass working well in a school environment at all in the elementary stages of school, like they show. there's a reason they use cheap durable materials (relatively) like plastic and metal. kids arent the most gentle creatures. i'd wager a school pushing something like that out in a gr3-5 class (as per the approximate age of amy in the vid) would have every single one of their displayed broken, or at least damaged in the the first 2 weeks of class. and its not the children's fault, its how they function; kids are rambunctious. or is it assumed that kids will be disallowed form actually playing in the future. tongue.gif

i see an issue with car dashes being all glass too. one serious accident and you suddenly have a dashboard worth of glass shards flying towards you at pace and bouncing around after the fact if there's any rolling or jostling of the vehicle.

in a business environment, this may very well be the way of the future, but glass is just not practical outside of a controlled environment. left to the elements the glass will scratch, crack, discolour (stain), or break. if the glass is as thin as described in the video, they better find a way to make it as shatter resistant as possible (and i dont see that happening). any solid instrument will break that in no time. take the scene where they are on the nature walk. get a windy day going and half that glass display will me either blown over or broken/damaged by debris.

TL;DR kids break glass, people break glass, elements break glass.

i also see glass related injury and death going up by over 9000%. just saying. biggrin.gif

It looks so perfect, but you have to remember how imperfect the world is. What if your tablet wont connect to your stuff or someone hacks your house!

The scene with the doctors, my mind instantly flashed to Gamer.
The best TV option they have is 3D HDTV? Seriously? That far into the future there better be holograms and frickin lasers everywhere

A couple notes: why does Amy need a closet door with a display just to choose what to wear. What happened to the days of browsing your closet full of physical objects?

The claim about reducing CO2 emissions and doing all this great stuff on vehicles by reducing weight by a mere 50 lbs is laughable.

I like the super thin lightweight tablets but where is the memory, battery, and silicon encased that is still needed to make something like this possible?
