The paperless office that was promised never happened, and despite our increased use of the Internet and electronic gadgets, we still love to print stuff out. While most people are looking for better laser and inkjet performance, Hoyoung Lee has designed a printer that works using pencils.
The world’s tiniest printer might have some competition if Hoyoung Lee’s “erasable” printer designs catch on. Lee’s concept design uses pencil lead rather than ink to print: Which means any pencil you have worn down to the stub laying around the house can be used to the last drop with the pencil printer. Even better, the design features an eraser mechanism, and you’d be able to erase sentences quickly and efficiently.
The potential paper-saving benefits are more intriguing. We would be interested to see how well the printer can erase old text, but the ability to reuse a single piece of paper for multiple printouts would certainly attract environmentalists. This amazing Pencil Printer Eliminates Ink and Saves Trees.
