Future Apple products will potentially be more durable and lighter in weight, thanks to a special metallic glass.

With Apple signing a deal with Liquidmetal Technologies, a leading manufacturer of amorphous alloys, future products from the Apple stable may well be lighter in weight and have scratch-proof surfaces.

Apple currently uses metal and plastic casings on its iPhones and Macs.
