    Yeah…..No. That’s Corning spewing baloney about “fold-able glass” to keep you interested in something they are losing out on. They aren’t even close to showing glass can that can bend as required – total BS. If you think about it; the matrix for LCDs and LEDS, OLEDS, AMOLEDS has always been a flexible substance with glass and plastic merely the choice to protect it. Now you can spray on rock hard polymers virtual ceramics that will do just fine on those bendy screens – and Corning doesn’t want to hear about that. The Apple Car is coming, too.
