Apple Exploring Carbon Fiber

Rumor has it Apple is exploring carbon fiber.  Carbon fiber is low weight but high strength.  People use it on tuned cars a lot to cut weight.  Most of Apple's devices aren't really bulky now so I'm curious what they are looking at with carbon fiber.

  1. The carbon fiber is a new breed of high-strength material. In recent decades, carbon fibers have found wide applications in commercial aircraft (up to 50% of the structure as composites), along with recreational (about 50% penetration in golf and fishing pole as units) and industrial (low penetration with high growth) markets, as the price of carbon fiber has stabilized and technologies have matured.
