Washington: Makers of Gorilla Glass, Corning, is now working on an anti-glare glass that also incorporates antimicrobial tech that can kill germs and viruses.

The screen will be made from the same glass used for optical fiber and is 30 times more transparent than the purest water, Discovery News reported.

Not only is this glass strong - it can theoretically tolerate the pressure of 10,000 elephants stacked on top - but it reduces glare when used outside.
An antimicrobial coating was tested and shown to kill viruses and bacteria in under two hours.
