Meet Vantablack, the world’s darkest color. Vantablack absorbs 99.965% of all light, allowing the chemical paint to come extremely handy in many intricate operations. The material used in Vantablack is ‘grown’ through a patented method, and its darkness is only rivalled by that of a black hole. To imagine how black Vantablack really is, picture a basketball. Round right? Shoot some Vantablack on there and you’ve got a dimensionless, black sphere. Pound for pound, it is more expensive than diamond – so if you thought you found the perfect interior paint, march on. It is virtually massless and is so delicate that a single hand swipe would render it useless.
