This article brought back memories of an old movie others may have seen. Some guy invents paper that selfdestructs but lasts long enough to deposit a check in the bank or cash it. Then the paper disintegrates and the bank is screwed!

Xerox Invents Self-Erasing, Re-Usable Paper



By Sharon Gaudin,

Hey, where did that document go?
Because many e-mails and documents are printed out for brief viewing and then soon discarded or recycled, Xerox invented printing technology that creates images that last only a day.

The technology, dubbed Erasable Paper, could lead to a significant reduction in the amount of paper used in an office, because once the image fades away, the paper can be used over and over.

A 1792 U.S. penny, designed in part by Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, reads “Liberty Parent of Science & Industry.”
