HP, 3M, and UC Santa Cruz have created a unique paper that has reflective properties. The innovative paper has a textured surface with specular micro-geometry. The picture would look different depending on where the light is shining and the angle you’re viewing from. The paper creates light and shadows as if the printed image is a 3-D object.

The concept is still a prototype and still has a lot of improvements to be made as the current pictures are pixelated and can only be printed in monochrome. Watch the video below to see how this revolutionary paper works:
