"i2R e-Paper; Revolutionary new erasable e-Paper

is environmentally friendly, reusable 260 times and will only cost US$2 an A4 sheet !

A team of Taiwanese research scientists have developed a new generation film that can be printed on a thermal printer.

According to the Taiwanese developers ""i2R e-Paper is paper but not paper as we know it -- not yet, anyway."

The material is based on a plastic film covered with choleric liquid crystal, a type of liquid crystal structured similarly to cholesterol molecules and can be erased by simply plugging it to a power source.

As they say in the video; the researchers anticipate saving many trees since  it will offer multiple reuses for transportation tickets, ID badges, paper signs and posters among many more. The developers anticipate their e-Paper will be widely available within 2 years.
