Disappearing Ink


Image from Design Mind

Xerox Corporation scientists have invented a way to make prints whose images last only a day, so that the paper can be used again and again. The technology, which is still in a preliminary state, blurs the line between paper documents and digital displays and could ultimately lead to a significant reduction in paper use…

Xerox estimates that as many as two out of every five pages printed in the office are for what it calls ‘daily’ use, like e-mails, Web pages and reference materials that have been printed for a single viewing… “This will remain a research project for some time,” said Eric Shrader, PARC area manager, industrial inkjet systems. “Our experiments prove that it can be done, and that is the first step, but not the only one, to developing a system that is commercially viable.”

  1. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
