New Xerox paper fades away in 24 hours

How does it go again? Ah yes, you should reduce, reuse and recycle. Xerox Canada has come up with a way to reduce trash by developing a special paper that “would self-erase in 24 hours or less.” This innovative solution is coated in “special chemicals.” When you send it through a printer, these chemicals go into action, and over the course of the next 16 to 24 hours, whatever you have printed will have completely faded away. Influenced by Bond films no doubt.

I could see this being great for short memos, but couldn’t the same be achieved via e-mail or intranet mail in our infinitely connected offices these days? And how about those used car buyers, they will have to be especially careful for their warranties, you could end up with an expensive sheet of paper the next morning.
