Link: The Future of Green Offices May Be Rewritable Paper
(January 10, 2017) Scientists have hacked a standard inkjet printer to create multicolor images that can be erased and reprinted eight times on the same sheet of paper.
A team of Chinese researchers recently combined some nifty chemistry with a standard inkjet printer to create multicolor images that can be printed and erased eight times using a single sheet of rewritable paper. The findings [“Dynamic metal-ligand coordination for multicolour and water-jet rewritable paper”] were reported in the journal Nature Communications.
