Did you hear that scientists were able to take aluminum and then use a micro-laser to shoot off the electrons causing the aluminum to be in a form of matter that is not normal, one that is translucent? It's true and it was accomplished by some scientists at Germany. Now, so far, they've only done an extremely small amount of aluminum atoms using this technique. But if the theory holds correctly they will be able to make translucent aluminum, which could be used for just about anything.
Imagine going to the 2010 SEMA Show in Las Vegas with all the automotive aftermarket entrepreneurs and companies, and just imagine someone selling translucent aluminum car and truck rims. They would definitely be a hot seller, and everyone would want them.
There is no doubt that the military would also want the technology to make invisible jet aircraft, missiles and other sneaky stealth unmanned aerial vehicles. Nevertheless, this technology will come in handy in the automotive sector. If you had translucent aluminum car rims it would make your car look like it is floating on air.
Your car would look like it is hovering just inches above the concrete, and if you had really thin tires, that were extremely low profile tires it would probably would be one of the coolest things you'd ever seen; add in a few LED lights, for effect and you'd have one smooth ride.
Well, this may all be coming in the future as scientists figure out how to keep this matter in its longevity, and therefore, use it as a material to build our high-tech future. Please consider all this.
