Corning Inc., a world leader in glass and ceramics production has recently brought an invention to market that has the potential to be a core piece of future technology devices. Corning's Gorilla glass, invented in 1962 but waiting until now for a practical purpose, is a super-strong hard to break glass. This glass can be used as a protective layer over touchscreen cellphone and digital devices, as well as flat screen TVs. This product is setting Corning up for a windfall of potential profits. Not bad considering this is a product who has spent 45 years sitting on a shelf, but in a matter of three years it has become a $170 million a year business with unlimited potential.
