Why on earth would you want to use something that essentially absorbs light as your screen?

As the light absorbing trim around the screen, it would be superior to the current champ, ProtoStar,

.....the turn-to material already accepted as the standard for Telescope linings.

It's not new tech....Carbon Nano-Tubes have existed for several years. However this is a first attempt to produce a product that is usable...and one can be certain it's not inexpensive owning to the fact that Aerospace and Scientific applications are the first end users.
