E Ink Holdings has announced JustPrintIt technology for reusable printing on digital screens. Electronic ink displays will be used as paper for the special printer. According to the developers, it is impossible to forge such a document.
E-paper electronic paper is a compact digital display the size of a Bank card that does not contain smart electronics. Using a special printer that supports JustPrintIt it is possible to repeatedly apply a different image. The service life of such media is about 1000 cycles of "printing".
Unlike smartphones and tablets, digital recording can not be hacked: you can update the image only with the help of proprietary equipment, and electronic components or software does not contain such a display. In the future, electronic paper with the ability to print can be used as documents for identification, transport or gift cards reusable.
The novelty will be presented at the technological exhibition Touch Taiwan on August 28.
