I can think of a few other applications: safety glasses, eyeglasses, aircraft windshields, spacecraft windshields, fishtanks (like duh!), drinking glasses, CRTs, LCD panels, basketball goal backboards, and ice hockey screens.

I'm just waiting on the warp drive. [ Come on, Stephen Hawking. Get on it already! ]

Schweeeeet! Gonna be great getting that on those Humvees to keep our boys and girls safer over seas.
Oh and Stephen Hawking is not in such good shape anymore. He is loosing even more of his ability to communicate with each passing month. He is almost unable to use his computer as of a recent article I read about him. Very sad for the world of science. :(
