Flexible glass is a legendary lost invention from the time of Roman Emperor Tiberius Caesar’s reign. The craftsman who invented the technique brought a drinking bowl made of flexible glass before the Emperor who threw it to the floor, where the bowl dented rather than shattering. The inventor then easily fixed it with a small hammer. After he swore to the Emperor that he alone knew the technique of manufacture, Tiberius had the man beheaded, fearing that the material could cut the value of gold and silver.
