With the increasing ubiquity of electronic devices, it’s not hard to imagine a future where we no longer need paper. But PEGA Design & Engineering thinks otherwise. The design consultancy firm has come up with a new paper-based material that can be used to make cases for gadgets.

The material is a mix of paper – hopefully recycled – and polypropylene or PP, hence the name Paper PP Alloy. It’s main benefit is that it’s recyclable and reusable.

PEGA D&E also claims that the material is strong, sturdy and flexible and can be used in injection molding, which should make it easy for companies to switch to Paper PP Alloy without overhauling their manufacturing processes. I guess it’s safe to assume it’s water-resistant as well. I wonder if you can still write on it.
