Singularity designs based in London has created a unique simulated black hole using a “CVD Carbon nanotube array”. watch the demonstration video below to learn more about how the black colour is so dense. Available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges available from £29 the palm sized Singularity will start shipping out to backers during May 2019.
“The surface of each singularity is constructed from a inorganic, carbon nanotube array which absorbs almost all of the light that hits it. This class of materials have important spaceflight applications, particularly for the study of remote objects in the universe. The arrays collect and trap background light to prevent it from reflecting off surfaces and interfering with the ancient light that scientists actually want to measure. Because only the tiniest fraction of light reflects off the coating, the human eye and sensitive detectors see the material as an almost complete black, unlike anything seen in regular life.”
The unique Singularity is available in a couple of different sizes from 25 mm up to 40 mm and the campaign is offering a 10% discount when you order two or more. For more details on its creation, inspiration and pricing jump over to the official campaign page by following the link below.
