Good for a cuppa tea. Store the stove in your wallet and use an origami tealite to hold the fuel. The fuel could be antiseptic towelettes also stored in wallet. Use bounty paper towels soaked with Everclear. Put in small ziploc, seal with "Seal-a-Meal"

Well, I must admit that designing a DIY wallet-size "make me a coffee" set looks like a really good idea for a kind of informal competition Lets say the stove, potstand and fuel should fit into 2x3.5x0.5 space and be able to boil 8 oz. of water. How about it? Do you think it be useful on trail?

Coffee or tea makers!I use small stoves like that for day hikes but I think 12oz is a better amount of water for the boil,8 just isn't enough for the wife and me.Limiting the size to a certain "cubic inches" might be better because of the bottle needed to hold the fuel and make other options for the actual stove available.My small kodak jets will fit a shirt pocket along with a bottle of fuel,,but are about 1" across.We can get nice small "hand sanitizer bottles about 5/8""x1-1/2"x1 that take up half your allowed stove area..and would even fit another pocket.I'd have to look for smaller square bottles to take up less space.

i built a small one a while ago that i called the "Mini Polish". look for it in Stove of the Month Club.
the burner is 2" diameter by 1/2" deep, and it will boil two cups of water.
the potstand is a hinged three sided affair that folds almost flat. 1-1/2" x 3" x ~3/16 thick.
