    Default Whoo hoo!

    Reusable paper ftw!

    In 2003, after a period an extensive market research, Xerox Research Centre of Canada (XRCC) began work on a new type of paper, one which can be written on and erased simply by applying light of a certain wavelength to it. The idea behind the development of this technology is the possibility to create paper that can hold information for a short period of time and can easily be reused time and time again.

    =\

    eh...needs to be improved more so i can feel compelled by it. That and also i believe there's got to be a better way imo. Something else or so...not saying i know a better way, just there has to be. 16 - 24 hours is just WAY too short for usage as of now.

    These look pretty awesome Ish... though they'll have to work to get them ouot before the digital paper (the plastic screen one). I love the idea...I wonder if it will get to the point of newpapers using that... simply because they have so much paper... and most of it gets wasted...

    Thanks for that article.. it's pretty sweet. ^____^

    I am a bit sceptic about the quality of this paper. But maybe it will turn out as a good product.
