Projector makers could use this material to construct a light absorbing chamber for OFF state light of dlp chip. So now when ever the screen should be black the, the mirrors tilt and light goes this predefined path to some place in the projector and gets absorbed this black material.

Its a material that absorbs light, better than say protec which is ised to line telescope barrels and lens barrels. How would you like TO to use. And as far as anybody knows TI is not developing any new chips not that the referenced material could be used in the manufacture of a flipping mirrors chip. Moverever, the little girl is now a young lady and God knows if the elephant is still aliveTI is breathing but that's about it for DLP chips.

This application report dated July 2010 from TI seems to imply that there are improvements that can be had via light engine design, materials used, tolerance, and the use of LED or laser light source technology; not just the DMD chip.

All sorts of things could still be done. most significantly I would thing a laser light source.

That assumes the CR is limited by the efficacy of absorbing the reflected light, but it may well be due to diffraction of light off of the corners of the mirrors.
This is a much more difficult problem to address, as some of the diffracted light is at low angles that will go directly to the screen with the "good" light.
