|oshiba Tec takes earth friendliness to the next level with their latest innovation: a copier that uses erasable toner.|
a color erasing device (which is also built-in feature of the
revolutionary copier), the print disappears, allowing the paper to be
reused for up to multiple times. "The toner… loses its color when
heated, so this technology makes it look as if the printing has
disappeared. With this system, one sheet of photocopy paper can be used
at least five times, so this product combines economy with ecology,”
according to the group.
What’s more impressive is that even if one
erases the print from a sheet of paper, the person can opt to save the
data pending to be deleted through the device’s scanning capability. The
copier also detects which sheets can be reused or otherwise.
Tec aims to release the copier in winter, with future plans to release a
color version of the device. The group however discloses that they have
not set the price yet, although they are assuring everyone that the
whole process of copying and erasing is cost-effective, if not similar
to costs of present systems being used.
