Liquidmetal iPhone, iPad or iWatch teased as patent tips production breakthrough

Liquidmetal iPhone, iPad or iWatch teased as patent tips production breakthrough

Apple could finally use Liquidmetal for new iPhone and iPad casings, a new patent describing a fresh way of processing the high-tech "metallic glass" implies, both scratch-free and allowing for more intricate molding and designs. The company, which invested in Liquidmetal back in 2010, and renewed its exclusive rights in mid-2012, has so far only used the material for its SIM-ejector tool, because of issues in successfully producing larger sheets. However, according to the new patent, that problem could have been addressed.

A new concept has been released for Apple's pending iWatch accessory, and we've got to say, it looks pretty acceptable. The concept was created by MacUser Magazine, and it shows a mini iPad mini plastered onto a leather band. The design is supposed to emphasize a conventional iWatch that's also stylish.

The iCompanion wearable: there is no iWatch

The iCompanion wearable: there is no iWatch
