In Terminator 2, T-1000 was that science fiction dream-come-nightmare: a shape-shifting robot made from liquid metal. Now, scientists have actually developed a self-powered liquid metal motor.
I'm not going to give my aluminum cans to recycling centers anymore. Instead, I'm going to melt them down to liquid metal and create awesome metal objects with them. All I need is a hair dryer and some charcoal to create this awesome mini metal foundry. It turns about 40 cans into a pound of aluminum.
Two researchers from a Beijing University have found a way to create 3D X-Ray images of some of the smallest blood vessels in the heart — by filling it with liquid metal.
Get y0ur T-1000 jokes ready, because we're one step closer to liquid metal-powered people. As a team of Chinese biomedical engineers recently used an alloy to close the gap between severed sciatic nerves in frogs. In effect, it made electronic circuits out of nerves—and it worked.
The incredibly promising metal alloy from Liquidmetal has been around for a while, but no one's really been able to figure out how to put the difficult-to-manufacture material to good use–until now. According to a new patent uncovered by Electronista, Apple seems to think it's figured out the key. One day soon, you…
A couple of years back, Apple purchased the patents from a materials firm by the name of Liquidmetal. The company made an amorphous metal alloy which combined high strength with the ability to be bent and flexed into complex shapes without suffering deformation. Many have speculated what Apple might use the…
This week rumours have circulated about HTC launching a blisteringly quick 2.5GHz quad-core phone. But that will soon seem paltry, when our mobile devices are fuelled by liquid metal.
Apple has been granted its first patent related to Liquidmetal, that futuristic metal with awesome plastic qualities. But the patent says that Apple won't be using Liquidmetal in iPhone and iPad casing, but rather as an internal component for fuel cells.
We learned a lot this year; from the origins of liquimetal and toasted thighs to the technical reasoning of ISO and CDMA. Check out the best explanations Gizmodo had to offer in 2010.
If you are a swordsmith with 800 experience, 903 strength, 540 dexterity and 1230 magic points, and have an engineering degree focused on amorphous metals, Apple is looking for people to work with their exclusively-licensed Liquid Metal technology.
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?
When we shared with you Apple's acquisition of Liquid Technologies' supermaterial, we noted that liquid metal is already in use across a variety of industries, from sports to aerospace. Or, you might find it on the wristwatch you have now.
Apple just bought the rights to all the patents from a company called Liquidmetal Technologies. Looking at their video demonstration, I don't know what the hell they are going to do with it, but it must be something wickedly mindblowing:
