According to its creator
The recently bough Liquidmetal technology will allow Apple to use it on future products.
Liquidmetal is the trade name for a new class of metallic alloys that have unique atomic structure, more like glass, and are commonly known as “bulk metallic glasses” or “bulk amorphous alloys." Apple has purchased, time ago, the company in charge of these and is intended to use in future products.
In a recent interview with Business Wire, the creator of the tech has revealed interesting info about the use that Apple is going to do with Liquidmetal. Here is the relevant extract:
One thing is clear, Liquidmetal is not going to be used in current or near-future Macbooks, iMacs or whatever due to the cost but used in a new product (iPhone 5 maybe?) and then, it could be used in other Apple products.I expect Apple to use this technology in a breakthrough product [bringing] an innovative user interface and industrial design together, [which would be] difficult to copy or duplicate with other material technologies.
