This could be really big (or not)


Recommended Posts

Sometimes small changes can have huge impacts. Check out the article HERE about a possible breakthrough technology that could allow blow molding metals at low cost. There's also a short slightly geekier explanation HERE .


Understanding that this technology is still in the early stages and may never come to widespread fruition, if it can be applied to manufacture it could have an enormous impact on the places you'll find metals and the shapes metal will take.


If it works as mentioned, we could use metals to take on virtually any shape at reasonable manufacturing costs. That's a pretty big deal IMO.

Amorphous metals are pretty cool but, difficult to make. The tricks involve very fast cooling making very thin sheets the easiest method. Seems like MIT might have come up with a different technique.
