LaCie's no stranger to turning external storage into works of art. Last year it hid a terabyte of drive space inside a silver-plated sphere, and while its brand new Mirror might have a more traditional rectangular form factor, it's the first external drive to be completely wrapped in reflective, scratch-resistant,…
Few of us ever really bat an eye if we get a scratch or two on our smartphone's screen. The real heartbreaker is when the phone is accidentally dropped or knocked off a table and the screen shatters, leaving it completely unusable. It's a fate many of us have experienced before, and one that Corning now claims we'll…
Forget about all the company's work on its incredibly durable Gorilla Glass. No one's going to care if their smartphone's screen gets scratched when Corning's other major innovation hits consumers. Because when their device is covered in Fibrance, a fiber-optic thread-like material that glows in any color and looks…
The slab of glass on the front of your phone currently detects your finger prods and allows light to pour through—but soon, it could provide an extra layer of security, too.
Everywhere you go you're touching gross things and then touching your phone. How often do you disinfect your phone? Probably never! Luckily, Corning has developed a new version of its tough Gorilla Glass that kills bacteria. The trick is filling the glass with tiny silver bullets to murder the bastards.

Your phone is filthy. Anything that's getting rubbed by your grimy little fingers on a ridiculously regular basis is going to be far from pristine. But Corning can help. Its newest revision of Gorilla Glass is not only ridiculously resilient, it also kills pesky germs all by itself.
The frustration with devices like a hypothetical iWatch—or a completely imaginary roll-up tablet (maybe a Vaio or something?)—is that they're made up of parts, and sometimes those parts don't exist quite yet. Or, in the case of Corning's brilliantly flexible Willow glass, they exist, but no one knows quite how to use…
Corning has made it known that next week, the company will tell us all about its latest ultra tough gadget glass. Details about Gorilla Glass 3 are scant right now, but here's what we do know: It'll be tough stuff.
Corning, the venerable creator of Gorilla Glass, is making a big deal showing off its latest creation. Meet Corning Willow Glass—the ultra-thin, flexible glass that bends and rolls like plastic.
Gorilla Glass, especially version 2.0, has earned its reputation for durability and strength. But reputation only goes so far and Samsung wants something more. That's why Cornign and Samsung are joining forces to develop a newer, better, more scratch-resistant AMOLED screens.
Materials scientists in California have made a special metallic glass with a strength and toughness greater than any known material, using a recipe that could yield a new method for materials fabrication.
Maybe if you had a free weekend and Mjǫllnir, hammer of Thor, you could crack Corning's Gorilla Glass. But that's a made-up thing! And this stuff is impervious to the very real threats of key scratching and localized pressure.
Lifechanger is a new section on Gizmodo in which we laud the everyday objects that make life oh so better. In its debut, we're going to talk about a classic culinary icon: Pyrex Colors mixing bowls.
When it comes to bandwidth, there are few grails as holy as fiber-to-the-home, also known as FFFFTTTTTTTTHHH. But it hasn't been very cooperative. Fiber optic signal dies if it is bent at 90 degree angles twice, so you're screwed unless you live in a round house. Corning, prodded by Verizon to come up with a decent…
