No doubt, that the future is with flexible screens, along with the bendable products that go with them. Willow Glass is a bendable glass so thin you can curve it in a deep arc without breaking. Manufacturers using the glass in future products will be able to wind this 0.1 millimeter thick material and bend it around displays of smartphones. Willow Glass can both form substrate for products and it can also protect sensitive electronic parts from moisture. Unlike the chemically strengthened Gorilla Glass products that cover smartphones, tablets, and laptops, the flexible Willow Glass is not that strong and can break if bent too deeply. Corning hopes to start mass production of the Willow Glass in the second half of 2013, its launch is planned for early 2014.
