Toshiba B-SX8R

Toshiba has developed a printer (B-SX8R) that can erase and reprint — up to 500 times — on a single sheet of paper. This process involves heat-activated pigments that turn black at 180-degrees-plus. When the pigments are heated from 130-degrees to 170-degrees, the pigements revert back to white, which essentially erases the sheet’s contents. Please view below for a video — courtesy of Vnunet.

Memjet

SilverBrook Research has developed a new type of “Memjet” printer technology. The devices use a printhead that consists of individual microchip segments, with each measuring 20mm and containing 6400 nozzles. This enables them to print at speeds of up to 2 pages per second.
