    Another interesting development is printing paper that erases itself and can be re-used. Scientists have recently invented a printer whose printed images lasts only a day, this is fantastic from a environmental point of view as the paper can be used again and again. The technology, 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. How usable or practical this would eventually become remains to be seen.
