Corning knows something about the glass business as well as about computers, as the company makes the display screens for many of today's laptop and handheld computers. Now Corning has released a video showing the company's vision of the future of computer displays. The video has nothing to do with genealogy but can you imagine using these tools to view images of census records and other old documents?
The video seems to show "computers everywhere." I found it interesting that there is not a single desktop computer shown with a separate screen and separate keyboard and a beige-colored box containing the rest of the components.
I don't expect all computer manufacturers to switch to these displays overnight but I suspect we will see something similar to these display screens within a few years as prices continue to drop.
You can watch the "Glass Computers of the Future" video at http://youtu.be/6Cf7IL_eZ38 or click on the image below. I suggest you watch it in full-screen mode to get the maximum effect. (Click on the full screen icon along the bottom of the video.)
