I started to read the explanation, but my eyes began to glaze over.
So they painted a small metal box with Black 3.0 acrylic paint, attached an earth lead to it and hung a $1000 price tag on it. It's like science fiction :wink:


"It's so... black!" said Ford Prefect. "You can hardly make out its shape... light just seems to fall into it!"

The blackness of it was so extreme that it was almost impossible to tell how close you were standing to it.

"Your eyes just slide off it..." said Ford in wonder.

$1,000 for your own personal black hole sounds like a bargain!

New and exciting products from Lessloss:
Irony is that a Doctor Ho commercial was on when I read this post. Lessloss, the Dr. Ho of audio.
