PUNCHi by Paul Russell

PUNCHi Screenshots


See if you can punch computer cards by twisting your fingers into impossible positions, just as programmers did fifty or more years ago.

The app emulates a 'keypunch' - a machine for manually preparing small volumes of punched cards.

In the early days of computing, data was 'fed' into computers on 80-column
punched cards. In the 1950s and 60s large batches of cards were prepared using electronic punch machines, but small volumes were manually punched, using a 'keypunch'. Good programmers could punch cards as fast as they could type ... can you?
