    7月18日消息,据外媒engadget报道,最近苹果的合作公司Crucible Intellectual Property被授予一项液态金属技术专利,这表明在制造可控厚度玻璃的技术上已经取得一些进步。苹果iPhone和iPad或将使用液态金属技术。

  对于任何比苹果的SIM喷射工具或者图片中的棋子大的物品来说,使用液态金属显然很奢侈。试图用所谓的“金属玻璃”批量生产更大的物体,比如手机或者平板等,在打造可控厚度上会遇到各种困难,因为拉伸和其他传统技术会导致物品碎裂。

  Electronista网站称该专利描述了一系列制造方法(涉及到冶炼和传送)用于打造可控厚度的玻璃,这种玻璃厚度在0.1毫米和25毫米之间,宽3米。文件明确地提到这种玻璃可用于iphone、ipad、手表上,事实上可用于任何电子设备。

外媒原文:
  Apple patent hints at possibility of Liquidmetal iPhone and iPad
  For all its tough chemical properties and unusual capacity for intricate molding,Liquidmetal is apparently too uneconomical for anything much bigger than Apple"sSIM ejector tool or, perhaps, the chess pieces rendered above (for illustrative purposes only!). Attempts to use so-called "metallic glass" to mass-produce larger objects, like the bodies of phones or tablets, have been hampered by difficulties in creating large sheets of controllable thickness, because stretching and other traditional techniques just cause the stuff to break. However, a patent recently awarded to Crucible Intellectual Property (the shell company representing the exclusive licensing tie-up between Apple and Liquidmetal Technologies) suggests some progress has been made towards removing this barrier.
  Now, we can"t claim dwarven levels of expertise on the subject, but we"re inclined to agree with the interpretation of the folks at Electronista, who spotted that the patent describes a range of factory methods (generally involving lots of melting and conveyor belts) for creating sheets of metallic glass of controllable thickness between 0.1mm and 25mm and in widths of up to three meters. The paperwork explicitly mentions the use of these sheets in making iPhones, iPads, watches or indeed "any electronic device known the art." In the shorter term, if you happen to really, really want a Liquidmetal chess set, you can register your enthusiasm at the More Coverage link below.
