Thinner and Cheaper Than Gorilla Glass

 

As long as we’ve had smartphones, we’ve been afraid of dropping them. With price tags of $500 and above, smartphones are delicate technological flowers that can be killed by a single drop of water or a collision with the ground. That’s why we’re excited about a new screen protecting material called Rhino Shield. Made from a custom-formulated polymer, the material is able to withstand full-on strikes with a hammer, and it’s poised to make Gorilla Glass look like flimsy wrapping paper.

So, not really a hammer proof screen, but a screen protector.

 

It might be able to distribute the force of a direct impact, but a lot of screen damage on phones is caused by side impact, and I doubt this protective film will help too much with that.
