If i'm not mistaken i've seen a documentary about this technology quite long time ago, so why didn't we see it till now, especially in smartphone industry?

blahblahblah glass glass and glass again. I am so sick of it. Why do they even use glass on phones when there is plastic. Plastic doesn't shatter, so why get complicated with glass.

They have the technology to do what ever they want years now but they don't want to use there technology to make bulletproof screens - monitors - glasses and others.
They could make some bulletproof visors for motorbike helmets and they doesn't do it.
Every 3-6 months I change visor on my helmet cause of the stones who crash and scratch my visor and I cant see the road from lot of scratches.
:(

Gorilla Glass 3 is just as tough as Gorilla Glass 2. The only difference is that 3 is thinner than 2. That's what Corning said about Gorilla Glass 3 when they announced it.

Someone should make Steel Glass not Gorilla Glass.

Gorilla Glass is just a glass that trying so hard to have metal properties.
It should be the other way around.

Steel Glass is basically a metal that can display picture on its surface.

Most high end phones still uses Gorilla glass 2 because it's tougher than 3.
