Don’t Shred Your Paper – Disappear Your Ink!

Take a peek at this, paper shredder that doesn’t shred – this is the electromagnetic erasing system. The idea for this project came to the designer from observing the destructive effect of electromagnetic radiation on color pigments. Scary! This project aims directly at utilizing electromagnetic radiation in a fully controlled reaction inside a machine to break all bonds of color pigments that absorb only a particular range of the electromagnetic spectrum. What’s that mean? Maybe… reusable paper?

The designer notes that the only way this system would work would be to have those CMYK pigments that would be utilized in a way that their absorption band is different from the paper they’re printed on. This process would be similar to photochromic or thermochromic materials in that color pigments start to decompose into colorless products – HOWEVER, also as the designer notes, this process would be different from photochromic change in that electro erasing would be an irreversible reaction. Hardcore!

    I really like this idea! With so much paper wasted nowadays, it would be great if you could just slip scrap paper through this and have a like-new piece of paper!

    Wouldn't the need to provide a large amount of power, outweigh the benefits of recycling the few hundred sheets of paper every time you use it?

    You are a genius man…. really smart. I would certainly buy one for my office.

    The process of removing the ink must be cheaper than the cost of using new paper for this to be implemented everywhere in offices and homes.

    Does it work if I write with lead pencils instead of inkpens?
