Corning demonstrates the power of Gorilla Glass 2 at CES 2012
Corning's new Gorilla Glass 2 is stronger, slimmer, and better than ever and has demonstrated this live at CES 2012. After having a volunteer break a few different types of glass and unsuccessfully attempt to break the original Gorilla Glass, the host had his assistant show that this 1.0mm piece could withstand at least 121 pounds of pressure (just shy of the breaking point of the glass). You may find this impressive enough, but Corning wowed the audience when a piece of 0.8mm (20% thinner) Gorrilla Glass 2 was also able to withstand 121 pounds. Thin is in - and it's strong.
