iPhones And Macs Of The Future May Be Encased In Liquid Metal
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. Liquidmetal Technologies produces a metal called Vitreloy that is lighter than steel, yet combines its strength and can be die-casted precisely to prevent dents and scratches on the product. Apple currently uses metal and plastic casings on its iPhones and Macs.
