This car’s decked out in Gorilla Glass

Corning’s “Connected Concept Car” has a dashboard that’s made entirely of glass. This might seem like a perfectly horrible and dangerous idea — except that it actually isn’t horrible, and Corning assures me it’s perfectly safe.

Corning brought the drivable concept car to New York City to show it off to investors. The car’s dashboard is made mostly from Gorilla Glass, the same sort of glass that’s used to make Apple’s(AAPLTech30) iPhone screens. There’s Gorilla Glass all along the dashboard and flowing down between the seats.

There’s even a pane of Gorilla Glass in the center of the steering wheel. OK, that sounds dangerous.
