Corning's Future-fied Video Filled With Glass And Touchscreens

Revolutions are talked about frequently, but in honesty, not too many revolutions come about. It takes something truly outstanding, truly innovative to be considered a "revolution" in our book. The original iPhone was revolutionary, but every model since has simply been evolutionary. But Corning's vision of the future, if it all works out, will actually be revolutionary.

What's notable is that even though Corning is focused on the glass aspect, they must also be infatuated with multi-touch. Also every instance of "the future" relies on touch or touch screens. The issue is that keeping a public use touch panel clean and clear isn't an easy task, so there will definitely be challenges. But even still, the video they've created is mind-blowing in many ways. We've seen some futuristic hopes before, but we've never wanted one to come true as bad as this. Have a look below. It'll make The Jetsons jealous.

Hard to imagine this coming from a company that my old man serves pasta in every saturday.

Sitting on your ass, barely moving your hand on a mouse is easier, and thus, in my opinion, superior to touch screens. If I want to move around and get exercise, I won't be at my computer. Now, obviously this is good for more than just computer use and still very useful. But it doesn't excite me that much.

This is very interesting really; if everything is available to you at any time, and anywhere it would change the world. We are in many cases moving towards this with the smart phones and tablets. Not to mention the big improved touchscreen desks that were demo'd at CES, and are used at some locations. It would seem to to me that everything having a display on it would be quite expensive. The things like transportation, and auto transfer capabilities from one device to another as they showed seems very interesting to me, and very efficient. I could see this though where every house has a server, and all the accompanying devices, although as I said before it is or will be expensive when initially implemented, I imagine as it always does with wider availability become less so.
