“A British company (Surrey NanoSystems) 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. If it was used to make one of Chanel’s little black dresses, the wearer’s head and limbs might appear to float incorporeally around a dress-shaped hole.”
My parents are often trying to get me interested in family trips. They wanted to know what sort of destination I would be interested in seeing. Ideally, I want to see some VANTABLACK, but I suppose a petting zoo would be ok too.
IF YOU DON’T THINK TRANSHUMANISM IS THE HYPEST SHIT GET OUT OF MY FACE
WHAT IF IM WORRIED THAT IT’LL WIDEN AND SOLIDIFY THE GAP BETWEEN RICH AND POOR, WITH THE SUPER RICH HAVING ACCESS TO FUNCTIONAL IMMORTALITY TO ENSURE THEIR POWER?
Yeah I wanna be a robot but that part terrifies me
