This is really beautiful to watch if you're into technology! Glass holds the technology. All of the technology is beautiful. (About 6 minutes)

Lovely.

I think most the technology to do all those things exists. I think it might still be a little while before we see roll-up glass. Otherwise it looks like Corning is viewing a world populated with large- scale iPads with a few new functions.

Not sure I want people interrupting me when I'm brushing my teeth. Sometimes one just wants a quiet moment alone, IMO.

Owens-Corning has become a pretty amazing company... really changing and driving new technologies. When I had to get my new roof I was looking into green possibilities. Owens Corning make a shingle with a glass coating the reflects back UV thus cooling the roof/attic space and cooling the house. Not conducive to Phoenix conditions in several ways, however. Sun, wind.
