The Staple That Uses Origami to Bind Pages Together


When is a stapler not a stapler? When it is a stapleless stapler. Introducing the Kokuyo Harinacs Stapleless Stapler, made by the masters of paper craft, the Japanese. You may be wondering, how does a stapler work without using staplers? We put on our best impersonation of David Carradine and intone those immortal words – “Young grasshopper, you have much to learn.”

The Kokuyo Harinacs Stapleless Stapler is less like a normal stapler and more of an amazing Origami, or the art of Japanese paper folding, wonder machine. That is because what it does is to use the magic and science of paper folding to hold the pieces of paper together. It is difficult to explain in words how it works exactly (that is why we have included the video below instead) but there is a window at the head of the stapler that allows you to watch the magic as it happens.

The only drawbacks are that it can only staple up to 10 sheets of paper at a time and it doesn’t work as well with certain types of paper like thermal paper or really thin paper. It doesn’t hold very well if you try to staple more pages.

However, we think that it is a small price to pay for forgoing staples and being green. We also bet that it will turn your office mates green with envy with what is most likely the coolest stapler in the office. The other big advantage is of course you will never have to suffer with the problem of being stuck with an empty stapler and no staplers in sight.
