The Far Future: Digital paper on Coke cans?

8496 web

We’re not really sure why we’d want this, and we’re definitely not sure it’s technology we can see a use for, but some smartypants are working on a way to embed movable text within digital paper in a disposal medium. That means text messages on a coke can.

It doesn’t seem practical to us, but then neither did Bluetooth headsets, so who are we to judge? There’s no real hard tech here, though, it’s just an announcement that the idea is being worked on.

Sure, sort of like my rocketboots, teleportation ring and coupon-code sharing website.
