Printer: Without Ink, Toner or Paper

As the awkward language suggests, this may be a Google Translation of the original Japanese site. Or I could be completely wrong and they just had a lousy translator.

Anyway, this is the PrePeat RP-3100, a printer by the Japanese company Sanwa Newtech Co. Ltd. Sanwa claims this printer is able to print up to 1000 times on special reusable sheets. That’s right, why toss out that 50-page thesis draft when you can erase everything on it and reprint again, thus saving a few more trees plus handing in a waterproof draft every single time.

CrunchGear has a write-up and a video of the printer in action with links for purchase, while the official site has a cost breakdown of the PrePeat versus generic printers.
