    Ventablack. Not actually a preferable colour if you're a black man walking in the streets behind a woman and passing by a police man. I'm just saying... A lot of things happen in the neighborhood

    This could make spaceships virtually invisible. Except it would be incredibly obvious to see when you observe it from space towards​ a planet.

    Why did they sell the exclusive rights of this material to some random sculptor? They could have made much more money supplying it to a larger audience.

    Fuck that guy too. How greedy can you be?

  • When you read my long name, I stole your sandwich

    If they can't measure how dark Vantablack 2.0 is, how do they know that black holes are the darkest thing possible? They actually don't know does black holes absorb all the light. What if there is something what really absorbs all the light so its invisible?

    This would be cool to coat a warehouse in this stuff, put the extreme sound proofing in it to make it completely silent, and simulate being not only blind, but deaf. Very cool but freaky thing to experience.

    Find a way to make vantablack only work in one direction, then bind it to a piece of glass, and voila, you can see your phone in direct sunlight on minimum brightness. Plus you wouldn't be able to see any finger smudges or scratches.

    I love all the stuff they're doing with CNTS, except whoever thought it was a good idea to try to make self replicating ones is crazy. Yes it had tremendous upsides, but that's also how we arrive at headlines reading "75% OF LIFE ON EARTH IS NOW EXTINCT"...they better focus on the safeguards lol

    I'm curious to know if this would make life at research stations at the polls any easier. the snow does nothing but reflect light, and this does nothing but absorb it. so I bet finding a few degrees is possible, which could help keep equipment from freezing.
