Liquidmetal alloys are a revolutionary class of materials that redefine performance, process, and design paradigms. Liquidmetal alloys represent the first enabling materials technology since the creation of thermoplastics and possess characteristics that make them superior in many ways to other popular high performance materials. First, they have an "amorphous" atomic structure, which is unprecedented for bulk structural metals. Second, they include a multi-component chemical compositions, which are optimized for various properties and processes. Finally, our metal alloys are the first commericially available metals with process technologies similar to plastics
It's rumored (I know... Apple+rumors=Duh) the new iPhone will be housed in Liquidmetal.

I wonder what it's tensile would be in structural wire applications for mine support or if it would have IBeam application for more wind/hurricane resistant structures but I'd guess they would also need to manufacture new rivets to match? Does anyone know if this material is fit for weldment?
If we hear about it, and Apple consider it as a new alloy for toys they offer, it simply means that military already considered it, tested it and rejected hence applications for General Population.
Probably depleted uranium is much cheaper, nevermind irradiating civilian houses and cities.

Then this material must be a huge benefit to "WindBelt Generators" where do i buy these shares
