After the emergence of a transparent battery, transparent screen and transparent mobile phone now, there is now another thing that has been made transparent: Paper. Paper manufacturer Oji Holdings Corp and chemical giant Mitsubishi Chemical Corp have developed a way to produce the world's first transparent paper made from plant fibers. Based on a common paper-making process, but at a nanometer-scale, this new technology has succeeded in making paper transparent. The see-through paper is expected to be produced at a commercial scale sometime in 2016. One day soon, we may be wiping with transparent toilet paper.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Ine Geevers: #YesNaturally was about co-evolution and partnership. How to become friends with o.a. bacteria, microbes and viruses. Because yes, they can be deadly and vital at the same time.
