Corning Reveals Astounding Roll-Up Willow Glass for Flexible Displays

FOX News: Corning has debuted a new type of glass so thin and flexible that it rolls up just like paper. “It’s seriously built like paper,” said Corning’s Dipak Chowdhury, “and behaves just like that.”

Called “Willow,” the new glass measures just 0.1 mm thick, about the thickness of a human hair. While the flexible panels won’t immediately lead to curved or flexible smartphones, it could lead to devices that are much thinner and lighter than current models. Most current smartphones use three panes of glass, each 0.7 or 0.5 mm thick.
