Corning has made its way to gadgets around the world with their durable glass and now they’re revealing the third iteration of their primate-themed glass. The company has announced it plans to show off Gorilla Glass 3 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). According to Engadget, Gorilla Glass 3 has been improved using Native Damage Resistance (NDR) which works on a molecular level to reduce the propagation of flaws, the number of visible scratches, and increases the overall retained strength of the glass. As the third iteration, Gorilla Glass 3 has three times better scratch resistance, 40 percent less visible scratches, and 50 percent retained strength after the glass becomes flawed.

Other details have been sparse and the company will be further discussing the merits of Gorilla Glass 3 at CES 2013 in Las Vegas. It’s clear that next-generation screens will be better protected from the elements to provide crystal clear images.
