(At no time was the Obama administration aware of what the Obama administration was doing)
Wasn’t quite that small but the Canon Bubble Jet from 15 years ago fit nicely in a laptop bag (about 4” x 10” x 2”) and produced high quality (for the time) prints on letter sized plain paper.

Or maybe a bicycle that folds up and fits in the trunk of my car... ;’)
