Wonder what happens if we coat all walls, including the ceiling and floor, of a room with this stuff?

 

Will it be like looking into the total abyss after opening the door, making you think you can actually fall down into the darkness after stepping in? :D

Imagine what kind of torture room we could design once we shut the door. That prisoner would think twice before breaking the law again!

The theme park applications are endless. I'd pay a good bit of money to take a trip to the void. I can see it now, Space Mountain, now truly darker than black!

Ladies and Gentlemen: Bizarrchitecture. Who decided that only eldritch abominations and ancient aliens get to build mind-screw things - we can too!

Now, for the competition of who manages to stay in there the longest before their sanity kind of… breaks.


Playing God is actually the highest expression of human nature. The urges to improve ourselves, to master our environment, [...] have been the fundamental driving forces of all of human history. Without these urges to ‘play God’, the world as we know it wouldn’t exist today.” - Ramez Naam

I found this: http://physics.stack...o-in-vantablack

 

Apparently, it has a ridiculously high level of thermal conduction (which makes sense since this is nanotechnology we're talking about) so it won't heat up very much, but if you managed to store a plate behind it, you could still theoretically capture enormous amounts of heat.

 

Which makes my weather control idea even more possible.


And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

Why Artists Might Not Want Vantablack Anyway (Yet)

https://creators.vic...l-color-history

 

 

So it looks like some artist has got a monopoly on the use of vantablack for artistic purposes. This has annoyed a lot of other artists. However this article talks about some of the problems with Vantablack, including some significant health risks. 

 

These will probably slow down any commercial releases of the stuff, for those wanting to experiment. 

 

Some highlights include: 

 

"Vantablack’s nanotubules can come loose and irritate the eyes and respiratory system"

 

"The substance has a “specific target organ toxicity—single exposure,” which means...that it can cause “non-lethal, but reversible or irreversible damage to specific organs after contact.”

 

"...and it hasn’t even been fully tested."
