World's darkest material [CNN]

http://www.cnn.com/2014/07/17/busine...html?hpt=hp_c3

Would this material have any application in the video display world?

I'd like to line my projector-based home theater room with that stuff.

Doubt it. I'm not buying the part about it being used to calibrate telescopes either. Any sensor could be exposed to an even deeper black by enclosing it's sensors in a steel box.

They don't mention calibration. They say it's to help reduce stray light.

But then it wouldn't be able to see the object (eg. stars/the moon) that you're trying to view (if it's totally enclosed). eg. if you're' trying to view a faint, distant star/planet, but there's bits of stray light leaking into the telescope it won't be as good as if there is no stray light. They're saying the signal to noise ratio will be better. From the article: "your systems can see fainter objects further away, you improve the sensitivity and you improve the signal to noise ratio in these systems". Like if you want to see the stars it would be better where there aren't street lights.

Yes they did. Did you see the video? Look again, at 1:10 in.

No I didn't watch the video, I just looked at the article . Yes you're right they do say it in the video.
