At the 2017 Consumer Electronic Show (CES), Corning (NYSE: GLW) lifted a black tarp and again showed us the future that its glass manufacturing abilities can create. Beneath the tarp was not an incremental innovation to an existing company product. Instead, it was The Connected Car, a concept that gives insight into the company’s innovation approach and presents opportunity for shareholders.
Technological revolution now sits at the driver seat of the automobile industry, years after a critical Bill Gates reportedly said “If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon.” To the casual observer, it is Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) and tech companies like Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA), MobilEye (NYSE: MBLY), and — yes — even Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and its highly covered Project Titan who are in the passenger seat navigating the revolution. But as the company’s presentation at CES 2017 demonstrates, it is Corning who possesses the ability to envision and capitalize on the period of change.
