Opinion: Vantablack – The real Black

Posted on

A British nanotech company, Surrey NanoSystems, has created the world’s darkest material.
Vantablack is made out of carbon nanotubes and absorbs 99.96% of all light that hits it. Conventional black, normally absorbs between 95% and 98% of light.
For what concerns to us, a Vantablack piece of clothes or product would look like a plain 2D surface without curves and contours, almost like a black hole.
