Back in 2010, Apple forged a partnership with Liquidmetal Technologies, giving Apple the exclusive license for the development as well as sales of products of liquid alloys. Now, Apple has bagged the patent for liquid metal production, which hints that the iPhone-maker may be gearing up to use the alloys in its products.


Liquid metal

Only a year ago or so, many people agreed that liquid metal was a futuristic notion. Back then, no one had dreamt that the mass production of such an alloy at large-scale would be possible within no time. Evidently, Apple’s partnership with Liquidmetal Technologies certainly played a role in bolstering the speed of these developments.

What makes liquid metal so extra-ordinary is manifest in this definition of the alloy, “The material is a group of alloys that have an atomic structure more similar to glass, with an amorphous quality.” In other words, liquid metal brings the durability of an alloy together with the flexibility of a glass, making it a perfect material to be used in the construction of different products.

However, it remains to be seen whether or not Liquidmetal Technologies is ready to launch large-volume production of the alloy and successfully create products with it. At the same time, Apple will have to find a place where it can use liquid metal and our bet is that a prospective iWatch would be the company’s best choice. Nonetheless, most of this is speculation, so unless Apple gives any more hints as to what it’s liquid metal plans are, we are stuck with the conjecture.
