Corning helps create a connected life in one of world’s most powerful trends
Corning innovations are vital components in the fast-growing Internet of Things (IoT), in which everything from fitness gadgets to massive hotel security systems can be managed with the flick of a finger on a mobile touchscreen.
Corning Chief Strategy Officer Jeff Evenson explained the company’s role in this powerful trend before a packed ballroom at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show. Evenson's remarks were part of a keynote presentation hosted by Samsung on the many ways smart devices are connecting to transform modern life.
With its advanced glass, optical fiber, and other innovations, Evenson told the audience of 2,600, “Corning is helping create a world of communication, collaboration, and connectivity.”
Evenson described how a household surface like a refrigerator door – with the help of LCD substrates -- can become a brilliant, high-performance display device to help family members coordinate and manage every aspect of their lives. In addition, Corning® Gorilla® Glass helps the appliance resist damage.
