That's pretty damned cool! I didn't wade through the entire article, but a few things stood out to me. It's still brittle, which means a finished product is still a little while from arriving, but should be incredible when done. Also, this could be fairly revolutionary because they can use cheaper metal alloys in the production. Lastly, one of the scientists is named "Poon", which cracks me up because that's one of Fletch's aliases in the classic movie.

"Last year the search paid off. Johnson's group finally found
a glassy mixture of platinum, copper, nickel and phosphorus that is not brittle."

I'm sure real world use is still a bit off.
