    Not that I'm aware of. The Schwarzschild radius is super duper small, and it's unlikely you could smoosh all the mass of an object into a volume so small, especially in a small device.

    You'd need CERN to help.

    Titor's time machine is constructed from fictional miniature black holes. So you'll probably need some fairy dust to make one.

    He actually wasn't joking. That's what he believes. :)

    There is now a coating called Vantablack which is so black that the human eye cannot understand what it is seeing..It absorbs only 0.035% of light.. and if you coated a small circular section of a wall with it and placed a poster above it saying Miniature Black hole, it would fool people into thinking it would be a black hole :eek:...i hope ive not deviated too much from the thread :XD::D
