Display technology advances year on year, yet full-colour ePaper has yet to make its full mark.

At the same time, though, laser printer technology has advanced rapidly, producing full colour copies at resolutions far better than the best of bestest monitors.

MaxCo is therefore pleased to announce the successful development of its latest pPaper displays.

Using the current printing technology, a rack of only 120 industrial-spec laser printers is required, along with the dedicated power generator and driver hardware. As each printer prints in rotation, the pages are collated and whisked along using technology borrowed directly from Fleet Street, and brought into position before your very eyes. There, each page is held stationary for 1/60th of a second before being whisked away in less than the blink of an eye, to be replaced by the next.

For the first time, you can enjoy a full A4's worth of 600dpi crispness!

Additional additions and optional options include the Origamitronic Expansion Pack, giving you a full 3D experience.

Endless-loop screensavers are available, and are recommended if you leave your monitor unattended for long periods, or live in a tree-poor region.

       This is a great idea. I am not so bothered about the resolution possibilities, as for the readability - think of how e-readers are sold based on their paper-like screen quality, not backlit but readable by ambient light.   

       The lag might be irritating when playing action games, I think.

       //The lag might be irritating when playing action games// Yes, but think of the crispness with which the wreck of your helicopter gunship can be portrayed!   

       However, if this concerns you, we recommend our Print Buffer Extension Rack, Multiplex Sorter and accompanying software. All possible actions are anticipated and printed, with only your actual active action being delivered right on cue*.

       Also for the tree poor region you can recycle sheets. Have an additional rack of printers supplied only with white ink. They take each page and print over it exactly, and send the sheet to be printed again.

       How noisy is this thing going to be?

       //How noisy is this thing going to be?// How noisy would you like it?   

       Incidentally, we are just launching our new sound card as a supplementary optional add-on extra extra option. It includes a full 88-note in-line punch which can be configured for all major models of pianola.

       Or chess.

       //windowed desktop version// Such a system is under development. Or "undeveloped" as we say for brevity.   

       In the meantime, we've got the "Print Screen" option pretty well sorted.

       I like the scalability... need a larger display?? simply buy a bank of A3 printers. Problem solved.

       John Logie Baird would be proud, and probably more than a little baffled.   

       Could the system be adapted to place transparency films on an overhead projector, for that "big screen" experience?

       Damn, [8th]. I wish you'd suggested that before we started development of our automated billboard paster upperer.

       Forget the white-ink printer. What you need is a dye-based (NOT pigment) ink that fades very quickly when exposed to UV. Include a high-intensity UV bleaching step after the display module, and you're good to go.

       printed on a disk that is wiped clean when the part of the disk it out of your site, this could be fantastic for 3d, like that viewer with bugs bunny I used to look at when I was a kid.   

       better yet, it is sprayed on a thin film of soap with every "frame" popped when done.

       This is perfect.
