Sony’s found the perfect use for its $1,100 Digital Paper: HR forms

In case you were wondering who would splurge for Sony’s $1,100 Digital Paper, it looks like the company has found another suitor: movie and television studios’ HR departments.

Sony has already targeted lawyers with the 13.3-inch E Ink Mobius-toting device, but now it’s teaming up with Ease Entertainment to make short work of the hiring process for the motion picture and TV industries. According to the press release, “Digital Paper enables crew members to quickly and easily read, fill out, and submit all required paperwork, complete with legal signatures” – all while using less of the thin white stuff, we’d surmise.

Ease’s part of the workflow is storing and securing the collected documents from wandering peepers. With all of those NDAs and so forth, the duo is sure to save some trees — so long as they remember to recharge every three weeks, and the set has a WiFi connection for passing along the signed forms.
