Perhaps paperless innovations are already a thing of the past as the Istituto Italiano di Technologia monomers paper research has brought a revolutionary find. Research finds that paper can be modified to be waterproof, magnetic, florescent and even antibacterial.

Through the science of nanotechnology, it has become apparent that molecules that construct paper called "monomers" can be combined with lab-made nano-particles to provide these super paper properties. The lab-made molecules interact with paper in such a way that causes the paper to evolve. This means paper could potentially be stuck on magnetic surfaces, withstand sprays of water and paper-induced items such as wallpaper could go extremely long periods of time without wear and tear. Paperless innovations in the office may be put on hold to get some more super paper lining on desks and walls.
