Google punches up doodle tribute to the office hole puncher

Google India traditionally posts a doodle dedicated to Children's Day on November 14, which is also the birth anniversary of India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

Google is paying homage to a device that has no place in the digital world: the hole puncher.

Regardless of model, for any kid who had to add loose-leaf papers to a ringed binder, the hole punch was (and is) a lifesaver. While the origins of the hole punch is a disputed topic, Google has acknowledged the 1886 patent by German inventor Friedrich Soennecken. These doodles can be found on Google's website.

The concept of a device that punches holes in paper and cardboard is 131-years-old today: an anniversary that Google has chose to celebrate with today's Google.

The Google Doodle is pretty fun, with the Google logo being made out of the punched holes from colored paper. It utilizes a lever and spring framework to enable the client to fix up and punch gaps with barrel-shaped edges through stacked sheets of paper easily. Be that as it may, as tablets and cell phones make the presence of paper itself less and less significant, it stays to be seen what the future may hold for the paper punch.

The German went on to establish the Soennecken office supply company and was later awarded an honorary title from the University of Bonn. Newer iterations of the machine are also used for more creative purposes like decorative purposes like making confetti. Even though workplaces have evolved over time, this hole puncher has more or less remained unchanged.

The design of the hole puncher has not changed much in the 131 years since its invention. While Smith's device was more for ticketing, Soennecken was laser focused on stationary, having already developed a type of calligraphy known as "round writing", and later the ring binder for all his holey sheets of paper to be collected in.
