Liquidmetal Chess Piece Rendering Artistic

We have updated these designs.  Please see the new blog here.

We receive many requests to purchase something made of Liquidmetal alloy, especially from those who have handled samples and are struck by the unique look and feel of this unusual material.  To be clear, the company remains focused on core markets with potential for significant scale. Promising prototypes in various applications are progressing through iterative development and testing, including Defense, Golf, Medical, Oil & Gas, and Automotive industries, among others.

But interest in a Liquidmetal alloy Chess set is an idea that has been suggested independently so many times that we decided to test the concept. Our summer intern, Cassidy Stevick, designed a set and rendered the images shown below.

Beyond frank and honest feedback on the designs themselves, we would like to know whether there is significant interest in purchasing pieces or sets.

If you'd like to contact us directly regarding this or other opportunities, please follow this link:
