PrePeat Printer uses no ink nor paper

Want to take the truly paperless route in your home and office? Why, the PrePeat Printer could be just the thing for you. After all, it uses a new kind of technology which actually achieves “printouts” without using either ink or paper, thanks to a heat sensitive plastic sheet alongside a precision thermal head that “prints” out both gray scale text and images. The paper which it is printed on can be reused simply by feeding the sheets through the printer again, where a different temperature removes everything or rewrites over it. Of course, with most of us printing documents out simply because we want a hardcopy, the PrePeat Printer isn’t exactly cost effective with a price tag of $5,500, not to mention that each sheet of special plastic paper costs $3.30.
