Apple has the liquid metal

Apple was awarded the license for Liquid Metal, a new league with extraordinary powers. Certainly we should not expect a metal capable of modifying its shape on command, as in the movie Terminator, but certainly opens new horizons to design. The new material guarantees a higher resistance than steel and a greater flexibility than aluminum, this is because it is an alloy of zirconium, titanium with amorphous molecular structure. The atoms, in short, are not organized in a crystalline structure, but randomly and this gives the alloy its unique properties. Perhaps we should expect an iPhone 5 made with this extraordinary material, even if the exclusive license was already acquired in 2010 and an object in Liquid Metal Apple has already produced it: it is the accessory to eject the sim card nelliPhone 3 GS.
