Xerox is showing off new technology that's environmentally friendly.The company has developed erasable paper. You can erase the ink with a device that looks kind of like a hair dryer and then use the paper again.

Xerox developed the technology after researchers found that about 45 percent of the documents printed out at work end up in the recycle pin or trash within a day.

The reusable paper is still in its early stages, but researchers say they are already getting a huge response from customers.
