With the launch of the iPhone in 2007, it seemed that glass surfaces changed overnight, and now we’re in a digitally tactile world where touchscreen technology reigns supreme. (Give a toddler an iPad and see how quickly she learns to swipe and navigate.)
But the future of glass isn’t limited to mobile devices. Eventually we’ll be waking up to a world where every glass, mirror, or hard surface is embedded with touchscreen features that synchronize with our increasingly digital lives, as beautifully illustrated in this video from Corning.
In the meantime, products like Interactive Interiors’ Multi Touch Glass (shown at the top of the post) offer Minority Report–style touchscreen solutions today for just about any commercial or residential need.
