I am sure you have heard about the fuss over the world’s blackest material, Vantablack, which came onto the market a couple of years ago. Since then, there have been a few “equivalents” like the Black 2.0 and a few others that seek to make the Anish Kapoor-owned Vantablack available to all artists.
Singularity 2 is the latest to join the blackest black hype, but it is not just for artists. It is a piece of the blackest black object you and I can own. Why do anyone want other than artists and space engineers want a piece of the blackest black object? I don’t know. Perhaps, it could be a geek’s badge of honor, or something?
Singularity 2, as the name implies, is not the first. It is the second iteration that promised to be even more black. In fact, Singularity 2 boasts a number of new features, including matte protective coating, no gloss at low angles of incidence, stiffened backing to prevent surface rippling, non-ridged micro-texture and of course, super black performance from all angles.
Singularity 2 is not Vantablack, nor is it the Black 2.0. It was created by one Simon Thompson as an alternative to the Vantablack. Unfortunately, it isn’t a paint which you can apply to say, for example, a car. It is offered as a display-worthy collectible, in ultra-clear Lucite acrylic, in two sizes and as a void sheet which you can cut and trim to apply on whatever art or object of your choosing.
Singularity Designs has taken Kickstarter to peddle Singularity 2 where you can help make it a reality by pre-ordering it for £35-49 (about US$44-62). If the campaign gets funded within the next 50 days, you can expect the Blackest Black Object You Can Own to be delivered sometime in March 2020.
