Corning Unveils 'A Day Made of Glass 2'

Companies make promotional videos all the time, called commercials. But when they present a vision of the future it is a lot more fun to watch. Last year Corning produced ‘A Day Made of Glass’ that was a fun semi-futuristic look at the day in the life of a family aided by a number of technologies that integrated seamlessly with everything they did. Not coincidentally – everything was made out of glass … and in an area where Corning has commercial products.

But the original was a huge hit for the same reason that I remember watching all of those ‘home of the future’ things as a kid – it is cool to try to look into the future.

Corning has also produced a longer video called ‘unpacked’ that goes behind the making of the video:

Note – the ‘unpacked’ video does go behind the scenes, and tells what is possible now compared to what is not, but it is also much more of a ‘commercial’ for Corning technologies.


[Full disclosure: I work for Corning as a statistician, but this post is intended just to highlight the cool ‘future vision’ of the video.]

I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
