Name-off privacy tool
The Name-off (subscription required) looks just like a stapler, but it's actually a tool for preventing identity theft and protecting privacy. The name-off punches seven tiny holes across sensitive information in documents like account numbers and the discarded bits are so small they don't contain any usable information. Because document shredders are usually large and bulky, they're not often used at home, so this could do well as a personal privacy tool.
Name-off is manufactured by Inf. Design office in Japan and no word on when they will reach the rest of the world.
