What the Tech: Smart glass

What is the single biggest technological advance in the last decade? You might guess smartphones, virtual reality, self driving cars, or a dozen other things.

But its actually smart glass.

One of the longest lines at this year’s CES was at Corning, showing new innovations with smart glass. 

The thin glass bends and allows for touch screens similar to those you have on your phone and tablet.

That glass can be used to turn almost any appliance into a media hub, like a fridge.

The smart glass is being used to shop in retail stores and on conference tables where workers can see and share projects.

As the glass continues to get thinner, more things are possible.
