Corning on Thursday announced its plans for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next week. In particular, Corning will introduce its next-generation Gorilla Glass 3 as well as its own fiber-glass Thunderbolt optical cables at the trade-show.

 

The Gorilla Glass 3 is projected to feature new glass structure that will be three times more scratch-resistant compared to Gorilla Glass 2. Thanks to new Native Damage Resistance technology, the new glass will also be substantially tougher and more durable on the atomic level than previous-gen glass.

“This year at CES, Corning will demonstrate its industry leadership in specialty glass and fiber optic technologies with the introduction of two products designed to enhance and extend the capabilities of consumers’ favorite devices. These new innovations build on the increasingly important and continually evolving role of highly engineered glass technologies in delivering improved product performance and functionality through touch capabilities, protective cover glass, and device connectivity,” said Wendell P. Weeks, chairman, chief executive officer, and president.

In the Corning booth, experts will be on hand to discuss and present hourly demonstrations of the toughness of Gorilla Glass 3 as well as the connectivity and flexibility of Optical Cables by Corning.

The booth will also showcase the benefits of Corning Gorilla Glass in larger format, multi-touch displays for education, entertainment and other applications.
