An advanced, flexible screen currently in development by Corning that is expected to be used in making bendable mobile devices like smartphones of the future and possibly smart watches such as the rumored Apple iWatch.
Corning's Willow Glass is an extremely thin, malleable glass that's only 100 microns (0.1 millimeters) thick. While easily bendable, Willow Glass can also break fairly easily if bent too much. Willow Glass is also capable of roll-to-roll production runs rather than the sheet-to-sheet production runs that are used for most of the screens on existing mobile devices.
Devices with Willow Glass could appear on the market as soon as early 2014, although some analysts believe advanced "wearable computing" devices with flexible Willow Glass screens are still several years away from becoming publicly available.
