Is this the stuff that Scotty gave away the formula for; aka clear aluminum? You know the stuff used to build the whale tank on the bird of prey.

The Ubuntu Edge claims it will have sapphire glass. However it's a crowd funded phone which needs $20,000,000 in the next 36 hours. Not bloody likely.

I only use my phones for a year so for me the glass has to be strong to last 1 year :D
