That's pretty impressive looking. Corning Gorilla Glass (which makes the glass for a lot of our touchscreen gadgets) just created a glass that's 20% thinner but just as strong so future portables should be that much lighter and make the interface more responsive. Sweet. But the downside is it isn't any more durable or scratch resistant. Sigh.
This is the kind of tech story I love, though, because it shows people are hard at work and thinking of the future. Go American innovation!
