Singing Shredder / Stationery

Singing Shredder
Singing Shredder

Working in the office when shredding is one of the most boring work.
Not only because the same action for the work but also the electric mechanical sound.

The idea of “Singing shredder” based on punch-tape controlled music box.
The sensor scanning each used paper as sheet music.
Users manually rotating shredder just like to turn the music box.
You can listen the music from un-know writer. This hand action brings user back to child as play with music box.
Let’s make shredding job more fun and also save electricity.
