Origin / Electronics

Origin
Origin

People always waste paper in offices. Some printed documents can only be used in a certain period of time. After that, they will be thrown away. Origin is a printer that provides a new solution to this problem. Users can set up a time period according to how long they want to keep the information in the paper before the Origin processes the request. As time goes by, the words in the paper will be fading, and gradually disappear after the certain time period set by users. Those printing papers will become new and can be reused to print other information. Origin helps to reduce paper waste and promote paper recycling.
