Seems like a very valid concern if the wire is deployed near an engine with aluminum parts...

Gallium hazard

The concern about leaking liquid alloy is a valid one; gallium will diffuse into many other metals, structurally weakening them.  Search around for some interesting videos of gallium being used to turn an aluminum soda can into the consistency of a wet paper towel! It's possible that it has a higher affinity for the co-alloy, making this a non-issue, but I haven't a clue if that's the case.

Awesome. This material could really have a lot of uses!

PS - Did you mean to say it would be discussed at DesignCon "2014" rather than "2013"?
