‘the Digital Newsstand’

Digital Newsstand | Scott Walker

Scott Walker works Monday to Friday as the assistant managing editor at the Birmingham News, Alabama’s largest newspaper. In his spare time he created this design project that transformed an old newspaper box into ‘the Digital Newsstand’.

‘I’ve modified an old newspaper box to deliver the latest headlines to my living room each morning, and I don’t even have to fumble around for quarters. It’s a simple home project that you can make with just a few used parts.’

All in all, the project offers a new way to view the news that blends the old fashioned newspaper standard digital technology.

Erasable Paper | Xerox

‘Xerox Corporation scientists have invented a way to make prints whose images last only a day, so that the paper can be used again and again. The technology, which is still in a preliminary state, blurs the line between paper documents and digital displays and could ultimately lead to a significant reduction in paper us. Xerox estimates that as many as two out of every five pages printed in the office are for what it calls ‘daily’ use, like e-mails, Web pages and reference materials that have been printed for a single viewing… Despite our reliance on computers to share and process information, there is still a strong dependence on the printed page for reading and absorbing content. Of course, we’d all like to use less paper, but we know from talking with customers that many people still prefer to work with information on paper. Self-erasing documents for short-term use offers the best of both worlds,’ said Paul Smith, manager of XRCC’s new materials design and synthesis lab.
