Default Corning Glass Innovations

For a kid who in 1964 stood in a 2 hour line at the Worlds Fair in NYC to have 3 minute group talk with people at an Exposition in San Francisco on the world first video phone. The things in the Corning Glass Video are amazing. And already "invented" and waiting for marketing.

That is some awesome technology, exactly the kind of stuff I've been wishing I had! I'd love to see how all of this stuff works.

I like the big touch screen TV, and even the mirror. But the dash in the car was way cool. Not sure how that would work in -25 temps. What I really like is putting down your PDA and having the table take over the display.

That video showed a lot of imagination, and a couple of iPhone prototypes. Hopefully, I can enjoy some of this stuff while I'm sitting in the rest home.

very cool stuff, but yep it will be quite a while before normal people will be able to afford that level of automation.
