Liquid Metal

Liquid Metal is twice as hard as titanium or stainless steel, and so smooth that paint won’t stick to it. But when heated to 750 degrees it turns into an easily moulded goo like plastic.

The company is trying to sell it as a new material for everything from golf clubs and tennis rackets to PDA, watch and mobile phone cases. It’s an amorphous alloy, see?

‘Kang is so confident of the material’s potential that he’s even hired Silicon Valley industrial design firm Ideo to help create a Liquidmetal-encased laptop that would roll up like a piece of paper.’

Nice article here.
