Videos that depict the future of computers crop up every now and then, and although they are fun to watch, most of them are more flash than substance. This clip from Corning Inc. – the glass and ceramics company that gave us Gorilla Glass, among other things – is no better, since it’s obviously a very biased conceptualization, but it does contain a few neat, if not mind-blowing, ideas.
