There’s no denying that Gorilla Glass has become one of the best-known industry standards for smartphones. Ever since their silent launch on the first iPhone, it’s now a flagship spec requirement that you’ll hear mentioned in almost every one of our reviews, and which keeps evolving like clockwork at every CES we go to. One thing you might have noticed is that the product hasn’t made it to wearable technology just yet, and even though there are compelling technical reasons for that, it’s something that’s about to change.

Corning has just announced a new product that they’re dubbing 3D Gorilla Glass, and what makes it special is mainly the fact that it was designed specifically for wearable technology. According to the company, this new type of glass conforms to the unusual designs of wearables, but with the advantage of not adding any extra bulk, weight or losing strength.

Corning’s plans are to make this technology available to OEMs in the next coming weeks with the idea of being part of the products we’ll see landing on store shelves later this year. There are still no specific partners mentioned, but given the popularity of Gorilla Glass, we’re sure the list is big. We’ll keep a look-out for this at CES 2014.
