Future Co-worker? Epson's 'Compact' Paper Recycling Machine

Does your office use a lot of paper?

It's not the only one. 

Unfortunately, recycling paper can be a pain — and costly. 

That's why Epson decided to make this: The PaperLab.

It's a "compact office papermaking system."

Cost of the PaperLab is unclear. So is its energy consumption. 

Ars Technica guesses it could cost as much as $75,000 (or more), which is about the same price as a Tesla Model X.
