[VIDEO] CORNING AND SAMSUNG OLED, AND THE FUTURE OF GLASS - From a joint venture between Corning Glass and Samsung may soon give birth to a new generation of OLED glass, a hint of the future that, in these days, Corning has shown itself in a very impressive concept video.
The two companies do not need no introduction: Samsung is one of the largest manufacturers of hardware, personal computers and laptops, tablets, smart phones, consumer electronics and display, and Corning has developed the world’s most famous glass protection in the world, Gorilla Glass , adopted by smartphone and tablet top of the range, and recently came to the second generation . Now, thanks to the joint venture between these two giants, announced in a joint press release , may soon come to market new OLED screens made ??of glass.
The Korean company is in fact one of the largest developers of this technology, which stands for Organic Light Emitting Diod, which also uses extensively in its Galaxy range of devices, such as the Galaxy Tab 7.7 tablet or smartphone Galaxy S II and is rapidly expanding on the market, so as to assume for the near future the advent of TV with this technology, no longer confined only to handheld devices. In anticipation of the boom and then the two companies decided to pool their know-how in order to be ready to produce these innovative glass substrates for OLED future.
According to a recent report by the NPD fact DisplaySearch, OLED technology has advanced very rapidly during 2011, marking a trend that will continue into the next decade. Analysts have therefore assumed that the OLED display revenue will exceed $ 4 billion in 2011 (about 4% of the worldwide market for video panels) to reach 20 billion by 2018, or approximately 16% of ‘ entire industrial production of panels.
This is short of a first step towards the future based on transparent screens and thin, 3D ready and strong and unbreakable, just from Corning shown these days in an impressive concept video in which he imagines the different uses, from handheld to the thin glass windows, balconies and cars, able to become opaque to preserve the privacy, then return to command transparent or time, or by detecting the brightness of the environment outside.
But goes beyond Corning, imagining the use as mirrors touch sensitive, for example to manage their wardrobe, inside cars, where it could simulate different types of bridge, depending on what is needed at the moment, such as covers and extraresistenti highly-efficient solar panels and even at school, where he would replace both the board that the bank, which thus becomes fully multimedia, ending in hospitals, for the most diverse, including a futuristic magnetic resonance completely transparent, capable of displaying the three-dimensionally results and to be used at full touch.
