A new startup operation in Japan is seeing great success and benefiting many. A new concept of free photocopying is hitting the mainstream and is being funded by corporate advertising printed on the back of the paper.


Implications - The operation saw its first success when the tadakopi machine was placed in Keio University's cafeteria on the Minato City. Its free service attracted many students and its popularity eventually spread to other post-secondary schools. What sets this apart is that the paper used is thicker than regular copying paper. The advantage of this design is that there are less paper jams providing less headaches for stressful students. It's definitely an interesting concept that will hopefully make its way overseas soon.
