Just how strong is Gorilla Glass 2?

Corning's new Gorilla Glass 2 is stronger, slimmer, and better than ever and they've taken the time to demonstrate this live at CES 2012. After having a volunteer break a few different types of glass and unsuccessfully attempt to break the original Gorilla Glass, the host had his assistant show that it can withstand at least 121 pounds of pressure (just shy of the breaking point of the glass). Corning wowed the audience when a piece of the what is now 20% thinner Gorilla Glass 2 was also able to withstand 121 pounds.
