Apple has a new toy. It's a materials company called Liquidmetal, and everybody's talking! Problem is, nobody seems too sure what they're talking about. So, Liquidmetal: What is this stuff? And what does Apple want with it?
Liquidmetal. It's a subtly powerful name, invoking images ranging from self-healing Terminators to Alex Mack. It's also an oxymoron: Liquid, metal. (Note to commenters: Yes, of course, metal can be liquid. Bad word choice.) And while Apple probably isn't getting into the T1000 business, they may have huge plans for our new mystery metal.
