E-Paper & E-Printer

Reprintable paper + printer

- Empty book with certain number of empty pages which is reprintable
- Even in times of digitalization some people prefer to handle real paper books, magazines and newspapers. In order to save trees and reduce paper usage, we came up with the idea of reprinting paper with new content.
- The user would put used books, magazines, newspapers, into the "e-printer" and get a new version or a new book back.
- Technically inside the printer the book binding is being dismantled, the ink is being removed from the paper.
- The process requires a special paper that allows reprinting, a removable ink, and a reversible book binding system.
