Gorilla’s To Kill Smart Gems

Even gorilla knows the importance of hygiene. That’s why Corning has developed an antimicrobial form of its Gorilla Glass that inhibits the growth of algae, mold, mildew, fungi, bacteria and other nasties that might want to take root on a heavily used smartphone’s touchscreen.

The glass contains an ionic silver coating that’s similar to what’s found on other germ-killing surfaces. It is claimed to function for the lifetime of a device, whether it’s a phone, tablet, PC or even a piece of medical equipment although the company stops short of making any health-related promises.
