I have seen the future, and I like it. Corning is responsible for most of the glass used in LCD flat panel HDTVs, among other things, and naturally the company can be expected to have a rather “glassy-eyed” view of things, if you’ll pardon the expression. But I was not expecting anything like this. The company has put together a high-production video showing some of the ways that its glass might find its way into our lives in the years to come.

The cool part is that I know many of the technologies required to make this vision a reality are already here. For the most part, this is not just making up futuristic stuff, but is grounded in reality.

And I have to tell you, I think I’d like living in that world.
