Corning demonstrated the strength of its third generation Gorilla Glass at CES. The latest version of its damage-resistant cover glass for consumer electronics is based on a completely new glass composition, with durability enhancements developed at the atomic structural level of the glass.

With its new Native Damage Resistance, Gorilla Glass 3 has been developed to provide improved durability to withstand deep scratches and cracks in the glass. As a result, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance provides enhanced scratch resistance, reduced scratch visibility, and better retained strength once a scratch occurs.

Engadget recorded the video below that shows the company dropping a 130 gram ball to see what damage it could inflict on the glass. Corning said that production will ramp up at the end of Q1 and the glass should appear in devices by the second half of 2013.

Glass need to be polished that's why it looks like that, polishing will not affect the glass after its done. But a transparent glass would have shown damage better than that one. Marketing tricks at its best.

As an engineer, you're probably excited about working at a big company like Corning developing new durable products that will be used by people all over the world. You're probably a little disheartened when they tell you to use your engineering skills to build a wooden ramp/tube contraption for use at a convention.

it's not a glass it's a gray thing that you can't see things through.
