Corning’s Gorilla Glass is used to protect more than 1.5 billion consumer electronics devices worldwide. The company has plans to expand beyond mobile, however, and is looking to bring its ultra-durable glass to cars. Jeffrey Evenson, Corning’s senior vice president, explained at MIT Technology Review’s Mobile Summit in San Francisco on Monday that cars equipped with Gorilla Glass will be quieter and lighter than those with traditional glass. The executive noted that because the company’s glass will help reduce a vehicle’s weight and lower its center of mass, which will theoretically help cars achieve better fuel economy. Evenson said that he expects at least one top-tier automaker to begin selling Gorilla Glass-equipped vehicles within the next year.
