Eco Printer uses erasable ink to reprint on the same paper
Paper as we know it can be recycled, and typically, paper fibers are recycled five to seven times. However, this recycling process is long and tedious. So, designers Sharsha Lee came up with an innovative design to save paper and reuse it, after printing for the Liteon Technology Corp. The Eco Printer basically uses erasable ink, that when printed on paper, can be erased off when required, allowing the paper to be re-printed on. A 2010 Red Dot Concept Design winner, Eco Printer uses specialized ink composed of photographic materials that disappear from UV irradiation, allowing non-sensitive documents to be reprinted over and over again!
We sure hope the Eco Printer ends up on store shelves and our desks soon!
