Anodizing Aluminum For iProducts

Bill Hammack, the Engineer Guy put together a nice geeky video discussing how Apple creates the iPod colors with Aluminum. Paint chips, but corroding aluminum and titanium results in a corrosion-resistant oxide layer in the metal.

This process results in a much stronger and highly scratch resistant surface for the Apple iPod and MacBook Air aluminum chassis. It really is simple...and somewhat magical.
