Old-tech paper punches
WHY can't someone invent a reasonably priced, non-problematic 3-hole punch?! The one I have at home you have to literally jump up and come down on it with force and then you hurt. The one at work that cost four times as much has one punch that doesn't function all the time, though there is a twisty thing to regulate that...but it doesn't stay in place. Absurdly, I just exchanged a new paperpunch of medium price for another because one punch would go down but not come up. And three of the ones I tried of the same make and model also had that problem. I have come to the conclusion that the whole species "paper-punch" is flawed. The design has not changed in decades, maybe over five decades. Inventing genius, your time is NOW.
