We already have fully transparent bullet proof glass and bomb proof composites, this is not a pipe dream. It's simply going to take research and time to adapt these materials to our desired applications.
Stop being such a Debbie downer.
You're all too quick to dismiss this, especially when you hide behind the word 'unbreakable'. The title is a summary, in order to efficiently get to the point they're trying to make. If you read the article, the word unbreakable is put into context, that context being a screen that can withstand the general impacts that come with a phone falling from about 5 foot. I can make anything look impossible when I take it out of context like you guys are doing.
I don't understand why everyone on OCN needs to dismiss things so easily without putting forth an educated argument.Edited by IcedEarth - 12/7/12 at 7:17am
