Metallic Glass is something I just learned of while browsing news items on Berkley's website. Basically it is metal that does not have the normal crystalline structure of metals which makes it much stronger and harder. I found this video on youtube and the reaction to the demo at the end of it was literally jaw dropping.

Totally impressive! They've come a long way. Actually this is inspiring enough to experiment with say... aluminum while doping the atom's lattice with Yttrium-Gadolinium molecules. I'd be interested in seeing aluminum that we could apply a voltage to and it would become transparent.
