In case you’re not familiar with the whole artist feud surrounding Vantablack, here’s a quick primer. Vantablack is one of the darkest substances known to man and absorbs up to 99.96% of visible light. Artist Anish Kapoor secured exclusive artistic rights to Vantablack, which pissed off, well, pretty much the entire art community. Enter Stuart Semple, paint maker and champion of the artists everywhere with Black 3.0. Billed as the blackest acrylic paint in the world, Black 3.0 absorbs 98-99% of the visible light spectrum, which makes whatever you brush, spray or roll it on to take on a weird surreal quality that almost makes it disappear in certain circumstances. More importantly, Semple is making Black 3.0 available to everyone (except Anish Kapoor) with a Kickstarter project to raise the funds needed to have it mass produced. We can’t wait until May to get our hands on it because we’re going to paint all of the things.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
