      @Beelzebubbles - Hail Satin! Prince of Shiny Fabrics! This is an old myth created by Semple because he's salty. Vantablack is a chemical solution - its not just a paint. Its a hazardous chemical that requires strict adherance to control to apply to a surface. Anish Kapoor was the licensed artist that managed the contract with Surrey Nanosystems in order to help their research and development... The company that makes it actively doesn't want it being spread into a myriad of artist hands and heavily controls who uses their substance because it literally is more than just black paint.
      This myth against the dude needs to die.

    There's probably also a little bit of scattering through the camera lenses to create glare, which turns into a lot of light bleed because of how much light there is.

      @G E I think he did this exact thing before but with with vanta black. It actually showed properly but he used a way less intense flashlight. It was surreal to see.

    • G E
      G E 2 months ago

      thats exactly what it looks like. you can see the black surface, but the glare around it expands to the point you cant see it. so thats not the same as the black surface reflecting light. It still seems to be perfectly black, its just everything is so blown out it doesn't show on the camera. this test needs to be done outside so theres not so much light bounce.

  • pls don't ban me again you libtards

    id be curious to see this flashlight tested. I wonder if it would even get close to 100k.

  • Djingis Khan
    Djingis Khan 2 months ago

    I would say that in order to be fair to Singularity you would need to have a piece of it that was big enough to encompass the whole lightbeam from the flashlight. When you have the light bouncing from your white table it around Singularity you create light pollution which can make it seem like the material absorbs less light then it actually does. Just a tip and a intressting video idea. :)

    Video Idea with your Flashlight:
    Bild a small enclosure for the Flashlight thats pure black on the inside. Film from different perspectives and catch the moment and kind the light will be passing through the encolsure as it burns down.
    The enclosure should be out of normal black paper and you should somehow protect your flashlight and probably make sure that no light will be escaping until it burns :D

    The thing with light vs surface is that it'll dim as you get a darker material. Singularity simply isn't dark enough. Today there are materials that are more than 2000 times darker than Singularity, but they aren't easy to get your hands on.

    So can you explain one thing please.
    You say that when you shine it towards a black paper it start smoking because it is absorbing all the light.
    The when you shine ot towards the "singularity" you say it is overpowering it because it reflects the light?!
    Isn't it because the singularity you have can absorb a certain amount of light and after that max limit point it actually becomes brighter hence starts to reflect light?!

But these flash lights, caused them to glow bright green, almost like a neon sign. So it is like shooting fish in a barrel. So much fun.

    I mean, the usage of such a diffuse light with such a small patch of material really ruins the effect. Glare just hides what's actually going on, and makes it look like the black square vanished. If this was done better, it would be far more impressive as it shows just how much light is being absorbed before a noticeable reflection occurs.. this video just shows everything AROUND the material reflecting.
