The ultimate road warrior's shredder

Handheld USB model runs on batteries

Ministry of Tech

In today's nomadic workaday world, where people can routinely set up office in their cars , such office staples as printers and fax machines have been reduced to Lilliputian dimensions. But what about those sensitive documents that they spit out?

The "Portable USB Paper Shredder" has been designed for just such road-warrior circumstances, weighing about 12 ounces and measuring 10 by 2.7 inches and less than 2 inches thick, according to Ministry of Tech, running on four AA batteries. It's yet another reason that innovation is crucial for traditional office equipment makers. Which is why we hope Konica Minolta is working on that copier-DVD-latte machine we wrote about last November.
