Could Jetrix Change The Print Industry?

(Image Credit: FPA Journal)

It looks like a new invention by Moshe Einat may enable newspapers in the future to print customized papers for users--not to mention make it easier to print books on demand.

(Israel 21st Century) Imagine a bookstore that prints your purchases while you settle the bill or a personalized newspaper that contains only the news you want to read. Such expedient printing may soon become a reality using a new Israeli technology that will enable printing 1,000 pages a minute at affordable prices.

Two researchers from The College of Judea and Samaria - Moshe and Nissim Einat - have developed a revolutionary printing technique called Jetrix, which enables simultaneous high- speed printing of an entire page of text. The technology combines printing and Liquid Crystal Technology (LCD) methods to make a page-sized printing array that emits ink instead of light.

Although this technology is still in the "experimental stage" (as Moshe has to develop a color version) this technology may help books make a comeback against their digital comrades.

If perfected, this could also enable print industries to drastically reduce the cost of printing, and ship out customized orders within a day of request.

Note: I wonder if would be interested in this technology?
