Super Strong Translucents for Touch Screens
 

I have been touting my Palm Zire 21 right and left.

In fact, I carry it with me everywhere -- that is until Sunday, when,
taking it from my back pocket, I noticed the screen was cracked!

Luckily I bought the $30 buyer protection from Staples ( which includes
one free screen replacement ) but I think: don't we have super strong
transparent materials like Lexan and others that are basically
uncrackable ?!

Yes, and no. Yes there are such materials, but they are not suitable to
the task, and usually scratch easily. And since we stop stressing stuff
when it breaks... You might try wearing a fanny pack, and keep this device
there.

I saw a HUD advertised that was going to be for sale "soon" for a portable
computer, back in 1991. I go to the store, and nothing like that is
available for sale. The key is to hardiness is to put it in protected
locations, and to decrease the breadth. This would be superior to large
fragile displays.
