          雙語:Iphone6猜想季

           

           

            據英國《每日郵報》報道,有傳言稱,蘋果下一代智能手機iPhone 6將發生革命性的轉變,有望采用液態金屬來制造外殼和內部零件。
            
            “液態金屬”是一種新型合金。這種合金具有特殊的原子結構,表面光滑程度與玻璃相似,因此也被稱為“金屬玻璃”或者“非晶態合金”。與傳統合金相比,“液態金屬”質地更為堅硬,借助3D打印技術制造零部件,不僅生產效率更高,成本也更為低廉。
            
            早在2010年,蘋果公司就被爆與加州液態金屬科技公司簽署了一份專屬研發項目,共同開發液態金屬在蘋果iOS設備上的應用。
            
            今年10月,蘋果在歐洲獲得了多項與液態金屬相關的專利。并且,美國專利商標局最近也公布了蘋果公司在美國獲得的與液態金屬相關的專利。
            
            目前,蘋果已經將液態金屬技術用于iPhone手機的SIM卡推出工具上。根據蘋果專利文件的描述,蘋果未來很可能會將液態金屬材料廣泛應用到 iPhone的外殼、邊框,以及 iPad Smart Cover的設計和生產之中,為手機和平板設備提供更好的保護。
            
            Will Apple's iPhone 6 be made of LIQUIDMETAL? It could make devices quicker to produce, stronger and cheaper
            
            It may sound like something from a sci-fi film but the next generation of Apple phones and tablets could be made from a super-strong substance called liquidmetal.
            
            Liquidmetal is a slow cooling alloy which means it can be moulded more easily than steel or aluminium, for example, and is more hard wearing.
            
            A series of new patents filed by the California-based firm explain how the company could use this alloy, along with 3D printing, to quickly manufacture the casing for new devices.
            
            It could also be used to produce the more complex and smaller parts needed for inside phones, too, as well as make the devices super-slim.
            
            Liquidmetal is a mix of titanium, nickel, copper and zirconium among other metals making it tough, light and scratch resistant. It also feels as smooth as glass.
            
            Rumours about Apple using liquidmetal have been around for years after the company signed an exclusive deal with specialists Liquidmetal Technologies in 2010.
            
            The new patents have fuelled these claims further and follow rumours that Apple is also looking into using sapphire crystal in future versions of its displays.
            
            These rumours were similarly started after Apple signed an exclusive deal, this time with sapphire mineral experts GT Advanced Technologies.
            
            Both technologies produce super-strong products and Apple may might be attempting to move away from its reputation for making fragile devices.
            
            The new patents detail a process that involves injection moulding and 3D printing using bulk metallic glasses (BMG) powder - the technical name for liquidmetal.
            
            Layers of BMG could be printed using a 3D printer to create the casing for phones, tablets and even TVs.
            
            These layers could then be moulded into shape using lasers and the process would be similar to how plastic is moulded for phone cases among other uses.
            
            Apple already uses liquidmetal for its SIM-ejector tool which is used like a pin to pop the SIM-card holder out from the side of the latest iPhones.
            
            The patent, originally discovered by Patently Apple, explains the process could be used for: 'a telephone, such as a cell phone, and a land-line phone, or any communication device, such as a smart phone, including, for example an iPhone, and an electronic email sending/receiving device. It can be a part of a display, such as a digital display, a TV monitor, an electronic-book reader, an iPad, and a computer monitor.‘(MailOnline)
