    It is so dark that the human eye cannot understand what it is seeing. Shapes and contours are lost, leaving nothing but an apparent abyss.

    Sounds like parts of Burnley.

    I would love to be able to look at something made of it, but I suspect it’s a tiny sample in a lab somewhere.

    It would be pretty eyecatching, though.

    Like the aliens in “Attack the Block”

    Is this what Rockshox have been using?

    from the article it seems prohibitively expensive.

    Keep an eye out for it on the 2015 fox range, along with a price even more eye watering than the looks.

    I found a photo with 200ml of it in a beaker.

    All Lionel Messi’s performances that contributed to him winning the Ballon d’or at this year’s world cup were made of this stuff. Because I sure as hell didn’t see them.

    Sounds like parts of Burnley Lancashire.

    I actually thought Rapha had got the lot for proper mamil’s trying to find something a little more slimming

    Surely that reflective stuff will adhere to it?

    Blackest is the new black: Scientists have developed a material so dark that you can’t see it…

    A British company has produced a “strange, alien” material so black that it absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of visual light, setting a new world record. To stare at the “super black” coating made of carbon nanotubes – each 10,000 times thinner than a human hair – is an odd experience. It is so dark that the human eye cannot understand what it is seeing. Shapes and contours are lost, leaving nothing but an apparent abyss.

    I’ve always wondered if you could do this with CNTs.

    Generally everything yo do with them ends up black anyway regardless of how much you use.

    I am guessing these are just some sort of buckypaper or maybe they are vertical forests.

    I couldn’t help but think of those old Roadrunner cartoons with stick on holes…

    Nanotubes stacked vertically, so forests, like looking into stacked straws painted matt black.

    The on switch is lit up black, with black writing on a black background.

    But can you remember what the teleport was described as on the invoice for the ship?

    How much more black could it be?

    Bollocks, should’ve checked.
