VantaBlack - What the funk is it? - Its name comes from the term Vertically Aligned NanoTube Arrays. There is nothing blacker, not even a band from Norway stands a chance at being blacker than this.
What's the point of this shit? Vanta EATS LIGHT, nothing escapes (Vanta absorbs a maximum of 99.965% of radiation in the visible spectrum), of course this will cause heat - great if your snow gear is made of it, not so great if some asshat makes a road out of it.
