Amazing Pencil Printer & Eraser Saves Trees

Amazing Pencil Printer & Eraser -
The paperless office that was promised back in the last century never happened, and despite our increased use of the Internet and electronic gadgets, plus the endless little green pleas about saving the environment on the signature of nearly every corporate email, we still love to print stuff out.

Printing technology, then, continues to evolve. Yet 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. According to a new post on Treehugger, 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.

Treehugger has photos of what the printer might look like and it looks pretty chic, but the potential paper-saving benefits are even more intriguing. I'd 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 and frugal folks alike. This amazing Pencil Printer Eliminates Ink and Saves Trees.
