    I'm just saying it wouldn't be like screen protectors we have today. I can't imagine someone putting a sheet of thin plastic in a 600°C oven and not watching it shrivel up and disappear.

    It's baked at 600 degress to make the slate not to adhere to a surface. Remember they can have this adhere to glass then start assembling the digitzer and other parts. Could you imagine a boat with this water and oil repelling on the bottom wow.

    Before I rejoice, I would like to see this in action. I remember when people were excited about gorilla glass. Turns out, not that exciting...

    Throw mine in the oven, but make sure it's baked with love. Just like mom used to make.
