Not named yet, created in a research lab in Germany. The scientists created and observed multiple atoms of the new element. Temporarily called Ununseptium.

Impressive as phuck, but im wondering how it can be applied in real life?

I thought the place holder name was ununseptium

They're just following tradition. I.e. Unununium, unundubnium, etc.

Also, calling it septium just makes it seem like 7.

Many of these new elements created in labs only hold their atomic structure for short periods of time before they fall apart. It will probably be a long time if ever until we are able to find a use for it.

This. That's exactly what's happening with this one. Except they were able to keep it together long enough to observe it for this one.
