Compact Paper Shredders

The Pocket Shreds Paper Designed with a Detachable Pouch

— October 14, 2021 — Tech
The Pocket is an innovative paper shredder designed to be more compact than its counterparts. Paper shredders are objects often reserved for clinics, offices, pharmacies, banks, educational systems, and the like due to their typically bulky designs. The Pocket, however, is small enough to tuck away on a corner of a desk.

Yifeeling, a design studio based in Zhengzhou, China, created the compact shredder with a removal pouch feature to quickly discard the shredded remains. In addition, Yifeeling's Pocket shredder is specifically designed to handle all kinds of paper, unlike other shredders that have difficulties recognizing various paper textures. Moreover, the Pocket can shred unfolded, folded, and crumpled scraps of paper with ease, making it a highly user-friendly desktop device.
