Corning's glass has been shielding gadgets for longer than any of us have been alive.
The company started out in the middle of the 19th century developing heat-resistant glass for lanterns and lightbulbs, moved on to TV tubes in the 20th century and now covers many of the phone screens we use on a daily basis.
But to fit each mold, Corning's glass has had to evolve almost as much as the technology it covers.
It's become heat-resistant, scratch-resistant and increasingly tough to shatter. And it may soon shape the next generation of foldable displays by pushing the limits on how much glass can bend.
We took a trip to Corning's headquarters in its eponymous hometown -- Corning, New York -- to find out what the makers of Gorilla Glass are cooking up next and what clues it can tell us about future devices.
