This intriguing technology lets you call up information on your smartphone by touching an object with your finger, turning your body into a kind of capacitive power line network. Imagine simply touching a piece of paper, whether it be a business card or a label on an object, and relevant information almost instantly being displayed on your smartphone. That's Ericsson's Connected Paper tech, a working prototype of which I saw. And what's really cool about it? The information is literally flowing through your body. Connected Paper uses "capacitive coupling" technology, which transfers electrical signals through the human body, using the same principle as your phone's touchscreen responding to your finger's proximity rather than the physical pressure you exert. click Read More below to get to the rest of the story

We’re thrilled when we have an opportunity to collaborate creatively. When the partnership involves one of our favorite brands, a group of curious and artistic people, and an opportunity to provide a tour of our mill, we’re over the moon. So, when Kent Hall of Blurb recently suggested we partake in the #BlurbRoadShow by hosting a creative retreat at Mohawk, we jumped at the opportunity. If you’ve created a Blurb book, you know the aesthetic quality is second-to-none. Outstanding photographic images printed with exceptional quality on beautiful, tactile paper makes Blurb books unforgettable. Blurb takes pride in using the finest paper in many of their books, and wanted an opportunity to show authors, creatives and photographers how the paper is made at Mohawk via the “Pulp to Print” process.
