"A Day Made of Glass..." is a very cool video from Corning Inc. that's enjoyed more than 7 million views since it was uploaded on YouTube about a month ago. It
shows a world where iPad apps can be found on nearly any large glass
surface—and much more. Granted the video doesn’t show that many window
and door glass applications, but it’s still kind of exciting to imagine
how building products and our industry could change as these
technologies develop and evolve.
The question is, in this fast-changing
world, how long is it going to take before these types of technologies
begin to have an impact on our products. That's our poll of the week and
while I can't require poll takers to watch the video, it sure would
help. And, of course, I'm not just interested in your votes, I'd like
your feedback on the ideas and products shown in the video. Where and
when do you see these ideas coming to window and door products? Post a comment
below or email me. We'd love to hear from you.
the way, I learned about this video thanks to a Tweet from Glasslam,
one of many industry companies and individuals I’ve found out there in
Twitterdom (Thanks @Glasslam
). I just entered
the world of Tweets a couple weeks ago, I must confess, and I’m still
not so sure how valuable it is workwise. But it is kind of fun. So follow me (@JohnWDmag
I'll keep you up with the latest headlines posted to WindowandDoor.com
and much more.
