Google Doodle Celebrates 131 Years Of An Office Staple: The Hole Punch

Google Doodle pays tribute to hole puncher on its 131st anniversary

However, the first recorded patents for a paper hole puncher was published by an American man named Benjamin Smith in 1885.

There's nothing worse that everyone forgetting your birthday, and thanks to Google's sketch, the hole punch will enjoy its day in the sun - although you can't help but think that anything slightly more noteworthy would have gotten the nod ahead of it. Prince Charles - born exactly 62 years after the hole puncher patent was filed - must be particularly ticked off. Well, I thought yesterday what Google Doodle will surprise the entire world on children's day 2017.

The sole goal of a hole puncher is to punch holes in paper, so that sheets can be bound together. The liveliness demonstrates a sheet of paper doing a little dance in the wake of being punched.

It may be recalled that Google used to run a contest called "Doodle 4 India".

The doodle shows a sheet of paper where the second "g" on Google's logo sits, followed by an animated hole puncher creating a pair of eyes and smile. Soennecken called the device "Papierlocher fur Sammelmappen", which means paper hole maker. Along with the hole punch, the entrepreneur is also accredited with the invention of the ring binder.

The inventor founded the Soennecken company, an office supplier.

"#Google #Doodle pays tribute to hole puncher on 131st anniversary! missed #ChildrensDay? asked one Twitter user".

Google has created a cute doodle to mark the 131st anniversary of the hole punching machine, an office tool that is useful even today. The more drawn out the lever, the more sheets of paper can be punched through with the same negligible power.

The hole puncher has been described as an understated but essential artifact of German engineering, which has remained unchanged over the years, according to the Google Blog Post.
