This is a ‘James Bond-ish moment’. The printed text is there and, later, it vanishes. Poof! It’s gone:
“…Scientists demonstrated paper that can be reused after printed text automatically deletes itself from the paper’s surface within 24 hours. Instead of trashing or recycling after one use, a single piece of paper can be used a second time, and reused up to 100 times, said Eric Shrader, area manager at Xerox’s Palo Alto Research Center (PARC).”
The technology certain has implication for privacy and security, as well as saving paper by recycling. It’s just plain cool – and a perhaps a boon to those who do not want to make a long term commitment to an issue.
