Xerox Corporation Unveils Erasable Paper
Xerox Corporation is unveiling its erasable paper to the public for the first time at WIRED NextFest—a showcase of global innovations transforming the world, taking place Sept. 27-Oct. 12 in Millennium Park, Chicago.
Xerox’s erasable paper is coated with chemicals that react to light of a specific wavelength. When the paper is exposed to that wavelength, it creates visible text on the page. Within 24 hours, the paper erases itself and can be used again; good news in offices where 40 percent of all printouts are discarded the day they are printed.
