Once again we see a new process that will make a known material a real player.  The article is well written, so I will let it speak for itself:

This could have wide ranging implications. Just the fact that it brings light weight with great strength without corrosion problems is just amazing.

Hopefully this new process will bring the cost of the material, and it ease of manufacture, into the realm of making it an everyday item.

I can think of many uses right off the top of my head. Artificial knees, hip’s?  Engine blocks? Golf Clubs? Train wheels? The list is endless….

It may take time, but this may be transformational technology. I guess we shall see.
