Star Trek tech once again comes true 

Easily my favorite Trek film in the series is IV, which is the "Save the Whales" movie. I know... you're shocked.

But it was also by far the funniest of the bunch, which is what I like about it. Especially the part where Scotty, after attempting to speak to a Mac ("Hellloo, computer..."), realizes that he will have to break down and do things the old fashioned way with a keyboard. And then, in 20 seconds, with a barrage of key strokes, he invents Transparent Aluminum.

And behold, 22 years later, we've done it: Metallic Glass.

Aside from being a wicked awesome band name, this is something that has a ridiculous amount of potential for both civil and military applications. Very cool.
