Wow. It'll even absorb light that isn't visible to the unaided human eye. This is actually blacker than black.

Horrible version of Black No1

Then again, I would have probably gone with Bloodletting, but I am a purist like that.

I'd paint my walls this color, and then paint the ceiling regular black to brighten up the room.

What does it do with all of this light it is absorbing?

The best part about the material is that it has these weird black controls, which are labeled in black on a black background, a small black light lights up black to let you know you've done it.

It's like a galactic hyper-hearse.

"In Larry Niven's Known Space series, Hyperspace has this quality: the human brain is completely incapable of perceiving hyperspace, and carefully edits it out of your sight. If you look at a window, you see the frame basically collapsed all around the window, which is slightly less disturbing. And if you look at a 360 degree panorama of hyperspace, you lose sight completely: you don't just go temporarily blind, your completely forget that you ever possessed sight, or what sight even is.

This is for the lucky, space-worthy people. About 60% of humans simply go stark raving insane the moment they clap eyes on hyperspace. Passenger liners don't have windows at all, because they don't want to destroy the passengers' minds.
And the space-worthy people have to deal with the fact that the "Blind Spot", the parts your brain edits out, will eventually start growing. First your brain just refuses to see the window, but eventually everything nearby will be "pulled in" as your brain desperately tries to edit out things that start being associated with the Blind Spot's location; you stop seeing the entire wall, then the walls connected to that wall, then... "

I don't care if it IS the best Maximum Nerd that money can buy, the point is that the money didn't wish to buy it.
