Reversible Printing

What if we could ‘print’ onto the same page forever?

Current printing methods are all permanent. The trend is to go paper-less but we are still behind. In multiple scenarios we still need and appreciate the physical output, yet the waste challenge is there. The Reversible Printing process is inkless and can be undone. The material onto which the machine writes looks and feels similar to paper, providing a sustainable and versatile outcome that can be re-used over time. This method gives us the choice of how long we want to keep the information available to us, and when we want it to disappear and ‘print’ a new one. A whole stack could be used for the time information is needed, and then instantly re-written.
