A Day Made Of Glass…!
Photovoltaic glass is a special glass with integrated solar
cells, to convert solar energy into electricity. This means
that the power for an entire building can be produced
within the roof and façade areas. Production: The solar
cells are embedded between two glass panes and a
special resin is filled between the panes, securely
wrapping the solar cells on all sides. Each individual cell
has two electrical connections, which are linked to
other cells in the module, to form a system which
generates a direct electrical current
Television on Glass
Glass Television has already been introduced in the
market, but being in concept phase its more buzzed in
R&D departments. The basic features of glass television
offered or proposed by corning are an Ultra thin design,
frameless and large format. Using Glass in television is
successfully made possible through Claro Holographic
TV, in which transparent glass is used as a TV screen.
Architectural Display Glass
Architectural Display Glass, its main features comprise
• Pristine surface,
• Electronics enabling and
• Touch sensitive.
It can be well used in our daily lives. It can be used to
send sms, checking emails, as its electronics enabled,
can prove to a boom in the glass industry.
Production:- Research is still going to make it possible.
Architectural Surface Glass
Enabling the display on glass has already been discussed
in this presentation, but that is not enough for using the
glass in our daily lives. Glass apart from being display
enabled, can also be used for cooking purposes, this
what a new arena proposed by corning. Corning has
proposed to develop a glass prototype which can be use
for cooking purposes. The designed prototype has been
proposed to be thermally durable, tough and display
Appliance Veneer Glass
Now comes another application for display and
electronics enabled glass, that is framing it over
appliances. It can be used as an ornamental thing over
the home, e.g. Over the appliances, display enabled
make photos toggling possible and touch enhances its
approaches. Another feature added to it apart from
normal display enabled one is, it is scratch and smudge
resistant so as to make it land on practical grounds for
rough usage too.
Hand-held Display Glass
Mobile Phones, nowadays acts like more than a
necessity to us, what if even they are made up of
glass?? A day with glass won’t be complete if it doesn’t
include mobile phones. To make it possible, Corning is
researching on a glass prototype apart from other
qualities already mentioned should be thin & light,
damage resistant and small but touch sensitive
Glass in daily life Automation
Automotive display glass: Designing a glass for car dashboard.
Yes, that’s what the engineers at corning are trying to make
possible, being fully loaded with earlier glass features, plus
adding to the streamline design elegant looks and adding the
whole advanced electronic functionality to dashboard giving the
futuristic oomph…! Advanced features like GPS, internet
connectivity are all added to it.
Next comes the Automotive design glass, which can be used as
smart sun-roof in cars, the proposed design for it is photosensitive
Large-Format Display Glass
In the later part of the previous video was a proposed
large-format display glass. Imagine if we convert all the
sign boards and landmarks into glass and electronics
enabled, it’ll be such a serene picturesque to experience.
The proposed format from corning makes it a large
weather resistant glass. It needs to be electro-optic
enabled and optically adaptable so as to control display
in low or high light i.e. day and night.
All Weather Surface Glass
Waiting for a bus at stop and need to know your further
going bus or any route? That is what the technology
aims to ease of following with a pure and elegant look
glass. Installing electronic maps at stops may help. All
weather surface glasses are mainly designed to be
damage resistant because they need to be installed at
public places, additional to it they will be display
enabled and touch sensitive.
Corning has proposed glass-tech designs for help in
business also. The first product proposed in this line is
large Wall-format display glass.
It is basically proposed to be a large-scale seamless
design plus being touch sensitive. Efficient video
conferencing is made possible through it.
Next comes Work Surface display glass, you all have
already been through the surface computing, this is
enhanced version of it only. Its versatile and durable plus
enabled with business applications.
Shopping made easy..!
Going to a store and don’t have specific time to check
whole collection? Never mind, for this we have
Electronics Ready Glass: electronics enabled interactive
interfaces are installed, you can check out the latest
collections and get there every detail right before the
store. Can also tell you the model and rack number of
the desired good. Go happy and smart shopping…
Flexible Display Glass
The new-gen items displayed and previewed before were
bulky and hard to carry. To ease of your project reports
and portability, flexible display glass is proposed. The
main feature of it is, its Ultra thin and roll able, with
touch & display enabling and all other features makes it
no less than a machine. You can sync it with your phone
or mass storage. It don’t have any other specifications, it
uses the basic OS as the device its connected too, it just
acts as a magnifying displayer.
Entertainment with Glass
As the day approaches to the end, entertainment is the
only part we missed till now?? There comes corning’s
enhanced 3-D television, it let’s you enjoy the movies
with your family and take you to the new world of
The last thing proposed is the portable display glass,
especially made for e-book reader.
