It seem that it is a logical evolution to our current technological platforms to be transferred on glass like panels. Argument can be made that technology today, especially mobile devices trying to be lighter and as sophisticated as possible rather that as small as possble.
If you think about first mobile phones there were quite big, so naturally mobile manufacturers tried to make it as small as possible. At some point the functions of the phone didn’t matter as much as the size - being super pocket friendly was the goal of industry. With touch screen phones however, this notion of being smallest transferred into having more functionally, features, having better and bigger display, yet still be portable - newest touchscreen phones are actually bigger than previous generation.
A Day Made of Glass… (Corning)
With technology evolving, “bulky” devices were transferring to the pocket size, like gaming consoles, music players, radios and so on. With popularity of tablets, people starting to transfer to the new way of reading and getting their newspaper on. Because of this very notion, reading off “not paper” material is a big habit changer for the regular person, the transition can be compared to when world was changing to the computers. Current generation at that time was uncomfortable changing the way they work and function but it was proven that doing it on the computer is better and more efficient and now we don’t even question that.
So does it seem logical that in future, the next platform or surface for the displays will be glass like material? In current state of thinking as of 2011, I think people would state that “it would be uncomfortable to hold a mobile device couple millimeters thin”, or that they wouldn’t trade paper for glass. I on the other hand think that these kind of aesthetic and ergonomic disadvantages will go away gradually, they industry will educate and take transitional steps so that current consumer can embrace new technological advances in the future.

That’s a fragmentation I like seeing;)
“The Gadget Show enlisted a team of design experts to transform a Birmingham studio into an FPS simulator costing £500,000 ($650,000). A four by nine meter video dome surrounds the player as they stand on an omni-directional treadmill that lets you walk wherever you want to go. Ten infra-red motion tracking cameras and a sensor on your gun enables the picture to follow where you point it and a Kinect hack controls your jumping and crouching. The fun doesn’t stop there — 12 paintball markers mean that every time you get shot in the game, you’ll feel it. The show airs in the UK on October 24th at 8:00pm, Channel 5.”
Eventually I have to start my Sketchbook…
I can actually relate to this guy “tweeday”. He actually have the same set up as me as far as monitors go. I’d say spend same amount of time if not more in fornt of PC doing stuff which brings me to my next point: I will do the same time loop of myself. I mean why not, I have equipment and it doesn’t take that much time…
New way to do shopping? That kind of change might actually get my shopping for clothes more enjoyable.
“The hangers look the same as a normal hanger but with a larger middle area which contains an embedded RFID chip. When handled by the shopper the hanger’s chip sends a signal to a computer which controls specific displays around the store corresponding to the position of that hanger. “
