Corning (NYSE: GLW) unveiled a new flexible glass — called “Willow Glass” — at the Society for Information Display’s Boston Display Week on Monday.
It’s about as thick and flexible as a piece of paper, while having the strength, durability and other qualities of existing glass.
Willow Glass can be made as thin as 0.05mm, which is far thinner than the current 0.2mm or 0.5mm display glass. Because of its thinness and bendability, Willow Glass could very well revolutionize the form and shape of smartphones, TVs, tablets, and other consumer electronic devices.
