A company called Corning is making glass that becomes a touchscreen display!

Check out their demo video... it looks cool:

Meh, touchscreen is so 70s. It came to everywhere - PDAs, tablets,....even b4 iPhone/iPad.... Who the hell would use keyboard when brushing his/her teeth? For updating his/her very interesting status message on some social network i guess....sigh...designers..

Hm... seems like adequate fodder for a science fiction story. I can imagine a bunch of sleep-deprived, hyper-caffeinated writers somewhere far away, pulling out their pens at this news... tongue.gif

Well ... every electronic thing I own is already touchscreen. And I'm not really the type who keeps up with the latest technology anymore. It just ended up that way.

Yeah too much of anything isn't good for us humans...we must have an equilibrium, or we could have major issues.

Looks like you already accomplished that feat, pengu. ohmy.gif

I wonder what's going to be after touchscreens...We'll find out.

As i said, touchscreens are not "cool" and "in" anymore, voice commands, movement gestures are now everywhere....then HUD glasses and holograms..

I saw this in my computer apps class! I thought it was awesome! Although, by the time I have enough money to buy it, something else 100x as awesome and 10,000x more expensive will be out.

And by that time it will already be outdated.

I have to agree, it seems like touchscreen has taken over the world by a storm. From before, only tablets and the original smartphones had the touchscreen feature and it was almost taboo to even talk about how mobile phones would work without physical buttons but now they are on TVs and a lot of other screens that work with different natures. Quite hard to understand that in totality.

Ohh...the nostalgy. I remember most of the guys in high school reading magazines about new Nokia models during class, discussing one of the new buttons it got during break, hah.

And welcome to WOOHP ranwor!

It's funny to see the guy get out of bed to use his touchwall in the morning when most people I know won't even get out of bed to change the channel on the tv lmao.gif

This reminds me of actually windows that had a touch display built into them:
