Fusion is a German SME that has created a notebook, the pages of which are made from a polyester component instead of wood. This enables the user to write, scan with a mobile, upload the content directly to the cloud and erase the pages with a damp cloth. The company has allied with some of the most relevant cloud storage companies, so that when users scan their page through the app, they can organise and decide where this page should be saved in the cloud. The notebook can then be reused indefinitely, saving therefore paper and plastic, which will, in turn, benefit our environment.
