The Daily Prophet becomes reality

In Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry and company find out about the robbery of Gringots by reading the newspaper THE DAILY PROPHET. What was cool about this scene is that the Prophet magically shows a live video, of sorts, in place of a simple picture.

Well, life has officially imitated art. NATURE.COM is reporting that paper capable of playing videos has been invented at the Philips Research laboratory in the Netherlands!

The paper looks the same, but the ink, known as "electronic ink," can be rearranged electronically fast enough to show video movies.
