Japan's Elecom knows that you've got some sensitive data stored on your computer. Thankfully, if you've stored that data on CDs and DVDs, the SCR-CD0001 is pretty much a Godsend. All it takes is about five seconds and the device will scratch up the disc so throughly that it'll be rendered useless. It should hit Japanese stores by the end of the month for around $26.

Hmm, I think I feel a poll a-comin'.
