Flexible e-paper in place of office printer paper

Its i2R e-paper is a reusable and recyclable electronic paper that can take the place of regular office printer paper. ITRI says not only is the e-paper less expensive than the costly rewritable printer products currently available, but also the cost could be comparable to that of conventional black-and-white inkjet or laser printing. A special type of liquid-crystal technology to display text and other images on a bendable, thin plastic sheet is used. To print a document, the sheets are run through a simple device, similar to an old-style thermal fax machine that heats the liquid-crystal layer, turning molecules light or dark. ITRI estimates that a single sheet could be reused 260 times before it would need to be replaced.
