Some of you, it will have even already experienced: a small inattention and already is the smartphone with gesprungenem display before you. There can be no Gorilla Glass Dragontail or if it goes badly, it shatters. If it goes to scientists at the University of Akron, this could soon belong to the past. They have developed a new touch screen, which is both flexible, durable and also to even more efficient than current touch screens.


Dr. Zhu and his colleagues have explained the technology in a scientific paper and say that the electrode layer has the same transparency as conventional indium tin oxide (ITO) layers. In addition, the flexibility and the higher electrical conductivity.

Normal ITO screens are relatively brittle and also expensive. The new technology can be 1000 times without deforming effect. It can be economically mass-produced according to Zhu also a not insignificant aspect on the consumer electronics market. If and when we will see these new unbreakable screens in use, is not known. The fact is, however, that manufacturers are always looking for more durable materials for their products. At least when it comes to displays.
