    Would someone mind quoting the article, or at least explaining what it is about?

    "Scientists have created a new material that absorbs more light than any other substance on Earth, giving it a reflectivity value of 0.045 percent. It's also 30 times darker than the standard we currently use to measure what counts as 'black.' It's practically like having a black hole in a fabric, which should lead to some extremely cool t-shirts"

    Lemme guess, Kanye's re-upholstering his entire fleet of vehicles right now.

    Maybe it will eventually have an impact, but black is only going to be as black as the ink absorption of the suface will allow.

    Not to say there won't be advancements in ink and paper technology based on this new discovery. But it's probably a ways off.
