Vantablack is the new black

British researchers have created the ‘new black’ of the science world - and it is being dubbed super black.

The material absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of light, a new world record, and is so dark the human eye struggles to discern its shape and dimension, giving the appearance of a black hole.

Named Vantablack, or super black, it also conducts heat seven and half times more effectively than copper, and is ten times stronger than steel.

It is created by Surrey NanoSystems using carbon nanotubes, which are 10,000 thinner than human hair and so miniscule that light cannot get in but can pass into the gaps in between.

The Trapper Keeper is back, but this time it holds tablets instead of homework
Mead has teamed up with Kensington to bring back the Trapper Keeper name and iconic design to hold your tablet— and I don’t care if it is a shameless ploy to tug at my nostalgia strings— it’s working and I want one. Sadly, I’ll have to wait until they go on sale in September. Wait, my birthday is in September. Hmm…

Scientists develop a bionic pancreas for type 1 diabetes

Diabetes is a disease that affects more and more people every year, especially in the US, because fat unhealthy Americans or whatever you’re about to say. While diabetes isn’t the death sentence that it used to be, it still can drastically reduce one’s life span as well as just being an enormous pain in the ass. As a more permanent solution to insulin or injections, scientists have now developed a bionic pancreas— basically it’s an insulin pump embedded in your body that uses sensors to check blood glucose levels every five minutes and doles out the amount of insulin needed.

Fleshlight just made an iPad case that you can fuck. So you can check that off your list.

Called the LaunchPAD, this piece of futuristic technology apparently took two and a half years to develop, and offers a fully balls deep immersive POV experience, especially when using something like Facetime or Skype, which would really add some spice to a normally boring as hell webinar.

The Food Babe says yelling “Satan” or “Hitler” at water will change its structure

In another one of her well researched articles, the Food Babe’s copious research has led her to the conclusion that microwaving water changes its structure in the same way negative thoughts do. “For the experiment pictured above, microwaved water produced a similar physical structure to when the words “Satan” and “Hitler” were repeatedly exposed to the water.”

Chromecast getting a slew of new features, might finally be halfway useable

If you were like me and jumped on Google’s $35 Chromecast dongle when it first launched last year, imagining it to be a cheaper, smaller and sleeker smart TV alternative to Apple TV or Roku only to find out it’s an incredibly horrible to use, interface-less way to tie up your phone or tablet to maybe watch something on Netflix. But at this week’s I/O conference, Google announced a number of welcome changes to the Chromecast, including somewhat of a Google Plus powered user interface and (finally) full scale mirroring between your TV and Android device, so that’s something.
