Xerox Reinvents Paper, Trees Rejoice

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

Not to be confused with the spy paper we showed you a few months back, the brainiacs at Xerox have invented a new self-erasable paper that fades to white after 24 hours. The invention "came from developing compounds that change color when they absorb a certain wavelength of light but then will gradually disappear." The paper is reusable though it appears you'll need a special printer to get images on to it. I can see this working in the newspaper industry and such, but I can also see a ton of scam artists making people sign contracts that "change" over night.
