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.

Most current smartphones use three panes of glass, each 0.7 or 0.5 mm thick.
