As history recalls, the formula that led to the Gorilla Glass technology of today remained dormant for years and it wasn’t until 2006 that Corning shook the dust off and started tinkering with new glass formulas.
Centennial’s own Nina Jagaric, a professor from the Electronics Engineering faculty at the Progress campus believes that Gorilla Glass has revolutionized glass technology.
“Before Gorilla Glass, display solutions were limited to plastics for smaller devices and thick heavy glass for larger screens,” Jagaric said.
And with the increasing rate among teachers and students using mobile technologies the potential to use them as tools for education is huge.
“Gorilla Glass has provided an enhanced touch screen experience and as a teacher, I see mobile devices as a big game changer in how we apply education in the future,” she said.
