Video of the week: Corning’s ‘A Day Made of Glass’

By / March 15, 2011

(h/t to KB) Corning recently published a video, “A Day Made of Glass,” which the company says is its vision for the future with specialty glass. It’s an interesting video that has already racked up 9,000,000 views in just one month. However, I suspect we actually don’t really see much of Corning’s vision that really…

Nanoscale discovery said to open new possibilities for tiny glass electrodes in microfluidic devices

By / May 31, 2010

A team University of Michigan researchers say they have figured out a way to nondestructively use glass as an electrode in certain microfluidic devices. Alan Hunt, a biomedical engineering associate professor at the university, and his research team accidentally discovered a way to get an electric current to pass nondestructively through a thin section of…
