I use my Fujitsu ScanSnap 1500M many times throughout the day, but I don't think I'll pay $3200 for the special edition model with Urushi lacquer coating and gold embellishments.
The special limited-edition models have been designed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of PFU and are decorated using an Urushi lacquer coating and gold embellishments. The high-quality lacquer coating is applied using a centuries-old method which originated from Ishikawa Prefecture, a region renowned for its excellent craftsmanship in traditional Japanese lacquerware and the birthplace of PFU.
Special Design Edition: Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 and S1300 (Thanks, David!)
The design of the special edition ScanSnap models represents the pinnacle of traditional Japanese aesthetics and convenience. The special models are the result of the collaboration between PFU and Japan’s premier maker of Wajima lacquerware, one of the most recognized examples of traditional Japanese crafts. The durable lacquer coating was applied using a special layering technique called "Tenpi kurome," and is accompanied by the depiction of a Golden Eagle (the official bird of Ishikawa) and company logo made from pure gold powder.

Unlike traditional lighters, the SaberLight features an electronic plasma beam that’s both rechargeable and butane-free. This sleek lighter is even approved by TSA, so you’ll never be stuck buying lighters you’ll just have to throw away partially used. For some people, like me, this is a pretty big game-changer. The SaberLight’s beam is actually both hotter and cleaner […]
