There's one problem.

E-paper will only replace written word.
It will never replace paper for artists.

Also, I work in the securities industry. We have to have a hard copy of every single piece of paper we send out. Meaning all contracts - paper, all letters - paper, all E-MAILS - paper.
I'm sure legal offices and courts are the same way.
While we have PDF images of everything we send out, it's a requirement to have a paper copy.

Try to get older established businesses and the SEC and the NASD to comply with going paperless.


Thats true too, in fact you're required to keep records by law yes? Email servers have to keep a back-log of all emails for like two years or something.

Paper is great for fidelity. Once it's printed, it can't be altered, only destroyed. But there is also it's weakness. It's harder to transfer, sort, and store.

PDF is one of my favorite formats though. PDF kicks ass, and is probably the best cross-platform formats for the sheer fact that it looks the same no matter which program opens it or prints it. (Shove that stogie in your ass and smoke it Microsoft .Doc)


Yes we are required by law adn teh SEC and the NASD, and our company's compliance office to keep physical records of every single written word that is viewed by the client.
This is so that there is an undeniable record of what the client has seen from the representative. (me) in case of a lawsuit or any other legal disagreement.
If it were on only PDF, then it will be thrown out of court as possibly being tampered with or altered.

Printed or written on paper paper, it's obvious when it's been altered or tampered with.

It's to save myself from being held liable if the stock market were to crash or some idiot decides to "get out of the down market" and ends up losing millions.

There are multiple stages of the law at work in the securities industry, not only do we have teh SEC and the NASD, we have the Federal Reserve and the FRB. as well as individual rules placed on us by the companies and the stocks themselves.
Some stocks are overseas and those deal with other various agencies and an additional set of laws.

Keeping things in unalterable forms in lovely paper-cut giving file folders is the best option we have at the moment.

On the subject of ink:
E-Paper runs on a cheap and affordable ink. Cheaper than pen and type writer ink.

I agree that e-paper has huge potential and probably will become a large part of our lives at some point. But I cant imagine it replacing all paper. No matter how cheap and simple they make it, it cant beat the durability of a plain book. Personally when I read, i enjoy the feel of a book, some of that would be lost when reading from an electronic screen. Also books never run out of batteries.

But its definetly techonology i look forward to trying out. Too bad its not up to the point now where i could replace my incredibly heavy school books with one handheld device.


E-Paper is solar powered.

E-Paper or, Electronic Paper is a.. Well a device meant to replace the wood consuming and boring white paper. Some devices have all ready implimented the use of this ultra-thin and ultra-low power consuming device.

Ever see a strange gadget that appears to have an ultra-flat LCD screen? That's not a screen, it's paper.

E-Paper is made of a cheap and durable reflective plastic called Gyriocon

Some pictures:
