A new type of glass, which is so thin and flexible it could "revolutionise" gadget design, has been unveiled in New York.
Corning Inc. unveiled 'Willow Glass' at Display Week in Boston.
The material is said to be ultra-flexible, and so thin that it could be 'wrapped' around a device or a structure.
It is as thin as a sheet of paper - about 0.05mm thick at its smallest.
The company's 'Gorilla Glass' product launched in 2007 has been used on more than 575m products.
Their new, thinner glass will make it easier to develop curved displays and thinner devices.
It "will help enable thin, light and cost-efficient applications including today’s slim displays and the smart surfaces of the future" the company said.
The glass will also be produced using a new "roll-to-roll" process similar to how newsprint is made - something which has not been possible until now.
The thinner glass will make it easier to develop curved displays and thinner devices.
"Displays become more pervasive each day and manufacturers strive to make both portable devices and larger displays thinner. Corning Willow Glass provides the substrate performance to maintain device quality in a thin and light form factor,” said Dr. Dipak Chowdhury, division vice president and Willow Glass program director.
