    for those out there like me that really want to get a hold of this stuff, or something similar, Google search "Blackest black Paint" and you should see some results saying something like "paint on black projection surface" it's made for canceling light on the edges of projectors and that kinda thing.
    its pretty spendy paint and is not as black as vanta black but it's as close as your going to be able to get without a science and chemistry background and a lab to make it yourself or thousands of dollars and some connections.

    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

    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.
