The darkest material on Earth has become even darker

Posted by in categories: electronics, materials, transportation

New material improving stealth mode vehicles and planes.

When Surrey NanoSystems introduced the original Vantablack, the company said the carbon nanotube material is capable of absorbing 99.96 percent of light that touches it. It’s so dark, it can fool your eyes into seeing a smooth surface even when the nanotubes were actually grown on crumpled foil (seriously — watch the video below the fold). Well, the new version of Vantablack is darker than that. In fact, Surrey can’t even give us the percentage of light that gets absorbed, because its spectrometers can’t measure it.

In this video below (and the GIF above), you can see the material engulf the laser pointer in darkness when it moves across:

China looks to ramp up Internet growth, and its controls

Posted by in categories: computing, encryption, government, internet, quantum physics

Something for everyone to keep a closer eye on in the coming year/s — And, they are indeed well on their way with Quantum and their partnership with Australia. Australia (as we recall) has been the one country outside the US and Canada that has made incredible progress in Quantum Computing especially introducing in Nov 2015 their discovery in developing a machine language for the Quantum platform.

BEIJING (AP) — China’s government has highlighted big data, encryption technology and “core technologies” such as semiconductors as the key elements of its push to grow into a tech powerhouse, according to a new five-year plan released Saturday that envisages the Internet as a major source of growth as well as a potential risk.

SkyWall gun stops drones dead, then gives a parachute landing

Posted by in category: drones

New Drone Stopping Gun that enables the public to target and gently bring down drones without damage. I see this offering some good use for victims of stalkers and robberies. However, criminals can use this to collect property from drone doing deliveries for companies like Amazon, Walmart, eBay, etc. However, most criminals today use rifles and shotguns to bring drones down; and the goods that they are carrying is often damaged as well. This will change that for them.

Capturing drones just got a little intense.

This new experiment will allow us to ‘see’ quantum entanglement with the naked eye

Posted by in categories: particle physics, quantum physics

An experiment that would allow humans to directly perceive quantum entanglement for the first time has been devised by researchers in Switzerland, and they say the same technique could be used to quantum entangle two people.

While it would be incredibly cool to be the first person ever to witness quantum entanglement with your own eyes, the experiment has been designed to answer some important and far-reaching questions, such as what does quantum entanglement actually look like, and what does it feel like to be entangled with another human being?
