Google doodles to mark the birthday of a special office tool

Google doodle hole punch history punching machine hole puncher German scientist Friedrich Soennecken filed a patent for the hole puncher

A number of identical holes punched out from construction paper are across the floor as part of the Google logo.

Google often designs its homepage with wonderful doodles that marks a particular day of the year, special birthdays and other major events like World Cup.

It's not only helped corral dangerously thick reams of papers for easier organization, the hole puncher has also provided many a test of physical strength.

"The satisfying, tiresome "click!" of the blade as it punches through the sheets".

This is how today's Google doodle celebrates the 131st anniversary of the hole punch, a staple in offices, schools and colleges.

The hole puncher was created back in 1886 by Friedrich Soennecken, a German inventor who is also responsible for thinking up ring binder. These doodles can be found on Google's website.

A blue piece of blank paper comes to life and starts to dance after it suddenly has eyes, and a smile, punched in. 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. Soennecken was the son of a blacksmith who founded his own company, F Soennecken Verlag, in 1875.

Another type of hole puncher is the single hole puncher, which is primarily used to punch tickets. The fruits of that labor make up most of the doodle, providing a happier use to the unwieldy mess usually left over from the task.

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.

In 1992, Bernadette Chenard, a professional paper-craft-artist who formerly used leather punches and standard hole punches to create shapes from paper, was exhausted of the sound of the hammer pounding on the paper and the difficulty in achieving professional results.
