It was spoken about paperless office and electronic books for long time, but none of considered elecronic technologies was able to reach excellence of the common paper until the " true electronic paper" has been developed. It has all the favoured features of common paper - lightness, bendability and flexibility - but it is indestructible. It is equiped with integrated high-density memory for thousands of pages of mulimedia content, and with wi-fi connection for online internet access. The mass use of this paper caused fundamental changes in European economy and primarily in everyday liife of European citisens.
