Erasable e-paper can be used up to 260 times

It is paper but not as we know it: A new erasable e-paper can be used up to 260 times, say its developers in Taiwan's Industrial Technology Research Institute. Researchers say it is the ideal replacement for the paper signs and posters that are now produced by the millions around the world. The "i2R e-Paper" uses a thermal printer, the same kind as that used in fax machines. When the message is no longer needed, it can be erased with the flip of a switch. An A4-sized piece of the e-paper, which is already in production, costs roughly NT$60 Taiwan (S$2.52). Developers hope it will be available to consumers within two years. Reuters
