Cobalt has been making the headlines recently for its new paper-like technology, and the paper is a new product of a startup called Carbonite.
The paper, which was designed with a special ink, can also be folded and used to create holograms.
The company says the new product can help scientists and engineers create digital simulations of living systems.
Cobalt Paper is the second new product from Carbonite that we’re hearing about, after the company’s new holographic ink, the new “digital superlaser.”
Both products were launched in April and have received positive reviews from customers.
The new paper is still in its beta phase, and it’s not clear how long it will take for it to hit the market.
Carbonite co-founder, John Cramer, told Ars Technica the company is working on developing a better version of the paper that will work on a wider range of materials, such as wood, paper, and even metals.
Cramer also says that the company has received interest from several major academic institutions.
“We’re hoping to have a paper-printing capability that’s available by 2018,” he said.
“We think the technology is ready.”
The company says it has received more than 500 orders from institutions including Stanford University, the University of Minnesota, University of California, Berkeley, and MIT.
Carbonites paper-based holographic product is currently available for preorder at $20 per sheet, and a “special edition” of 20 sheets costs $200.
The special edition will have an ink-jet print capability and will include a new, holographic holographic paper, carbonite-inspired paper, or paper with “digital supersensitivity.”
Cramer also revealed that the holographic material, which is currently only available in paper form, is already being developed and testing on some types of materials.
Carbonitic said it has started working with the University at Buffalo and University of Tennessee on holographic nanotubes, a material that could one day help create holographic images on a microscale.
The company said that it will have a holographic sensor in the near future that can scan the environment and create a hologram-like image, as well as “a holographic camera that can detect objects.”
The next step for Carbonite is to develop a product that can be manufactured at scale using carbon fiber or plastic.
The firm said it expects to launch the first holographic printer sometime this year.
Carbonic also has plans to make a holograph-printed iPhone case.
The technology behind the hologram paper is an important step in the evolution of the holograph, and we’ve seen companies like Google and IBM work to develop more realistic holograms that are easier to create and more attractive to consumers.
Carbon is hoping to capitalize on this trend by creating a holograms’ printable ink that can also work in paper and other materials.
