Heart of Glass

Acart President Al Albania sent me this fascinating bit of futurism from Corning, who are riding high on the wave of high-tech glass as the ideal interface material:

It's a little long, but it rings true. Especially if you are reading Work That Matters on an iPhone or iPad.

Many of these technologies are already in place. And while the bathroom mirror interactivity seems a little intrusive to me, I can see Gen Y loving the idea of constant connectedness.

It's interesting to note that, in addition to announcing glass' future, Corning curates its past at the Corning Museum of Glass. It's amazing to think that a technology that was started thousands of years ago can still amaze us. Plus, it's reusable and extremely recyclable.

Makes you appreciate that beer bottle just a little bit more, doesn't it?
