The interface seen in the video is much like the touch interfaces we have today on Apple’s iOS products. If Apple made a home server (let’s call it the iHome), something I’ve long urged, the company could power glass interfaces such as those seen in the Corning video.
Let’s take it a step further. As small as the Mac mini is, Apple could conceivably have a division that rolls those into automobile appliances — and a host of other places and applications that could tie in to the “Glass-like” scenario.Basically, Apple would be making the Corning “A Day Made of Glass” a reality. I believe Apple could implement many of the scenarios shown in the video today — and application developers would go nuts with the possibilities.
You can watch “A Day Made of Glass 2: Unpacked. The Story Behind Corning’s Vision” at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-GXO_urMow . I realize that Apple must pick its projects carefully, but when it comes to a day, or future, made of glass, why let Corning have all the fun?
