Philips says 2 years till paper displays reach consumers.

I would love to have a room divider or curtains made of this stuff. Imagine a Japanese themed house with paper walls made of this. Or put a strong backing of clear vinyl or plastic and make tents for burning man out of it. Or use it as wall paper, or just wrape pillars are parties with it. Or even use it as wraping paper.

While spendy at about a dollar or two a foot, it will drop in price with time as manufacturing ramps up.

What I want...

My printer can also print on cd's. It's not a feaure I ever use, but I think it would be cool if I would run plastic sheets through the printer and replace the black ink cartidge with something corrosive that would etch an image into the plastic.

I can dream.

So... McMenamins has 51 locations. There are 52 weeks in a year. How hard would it be to hit (actually order and consume something) all 51 locations in one year? All the locations are in Oregon and Washington.

The extremes:
North: Mill Creek, Wa.
East: Bend, Or
South: Roseburg, Or
West: Lincoln City, Or.

All within 4 hours drive. And a majority of the locations are here in the Portland area.
