Just when you think you’ve seen all the colours of the rainbow, this will blow your mind!
British researchers from Surrey NanoSystems have created a new material called Vantablack. It’s made of tightly packed nanotubes and absorbs almost all light – this means it is so dark our eyes can’t actually see it. It’s essentially a black hole and confuses your brain. That explains our sudden headache…
“If it was used to make one of Chanel’s little black dresses, the wearer’s head and limbs might appear to flight incorporeally around a dress-shaped hole,” The Independent reported.
To make this development even crazier, it makes normal black look BLUE.
Unfortunately Vantablack isn’t a new colour, it is just a material. You also can’t buy it and only one artist in the world has the rights to use it.
We can’t wait to see what scientists develops in the future!
