(Some Guy)   If you love Oregon Duck football and you love golf, and you have at least $1,520 lying around, you can buy a Nike driver (only 2 in the world exist) with Oregon's "liquid metal" finish. Bonus: the shaft has ninja stars on it   (oregonauthentic.com) divider line 8

Sounding PSU-ish in the level of adoration.

Seems likely to be amorphous metal alloys.

It's cool stuff, developed at Cal-Tech. It's a metal alloy that doesn't form crystals. It should revolutionize manufacturing (basically forming metal with techniques that are normally done only with plastics), but has basically only been used to make luxury products so far (Omega made a watch, some golf clubs, stuff like that). I suspect it's not as cheap as powder coated plastic, and isn't as known to consumers as a better enough product to notice the difference.

I dunno why this would be noteworthy since their fans clearly bathe in the stuff

How about you make the helmets from the Rose Bowl available for sale (or ones like them)? I will buy one - those were awesome.
