Xerox Canada has developed “a way to create temporary images on paper that would self-erase in 24 hours or less.” No word yet on availability.

The special pages could theoretically be used again and again — as much as 50 times — to give the office recycling bins a rest. Xerox is now trying patent the technology. The Canadian team designed paper covered with special chemicals. Once the paper goes through the printer, the chemicals are exposed to a light source that causes the text on the paper to gradually fade. It disappears completely in 16 to 24 hours, but can be quickly erased by running it through the printer again
