Center Staple Solves a First-World Problem Most Students Face
January 28th, 2014
Despite the move to eBooks and tablets, papers and printed reports are still a part of life. At least, they are, if you had a course in school where you had to turn in papers and all. Writing the actual paper is hard enough. While printing is relatively easy, stapling everything gets a bit complicated, especially if you don’t have a big-enough stapler.
Cue the Center Stapler, which is designed to staple the center of the book or papers so you don’t have to use half of a regular stapler and bend the wire ends manually.
The device has a bottom that can be separated from the top part, so both parts are on opposite sides of the paper. One part “connects” to the other by way of magnets. When you’re ready to staple, just push down and you’re done.
The Center Stapler is a concept by Daehyun Kwon, who was nominated for a 2013 SPARK award for the design.
