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

And in honor of the hole puncher's longevity, Google created an illustration of the device as a Google Doodle.

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

Google Doodle recently honoured Urdu author Abdul Qavi Desnavi and Himalayan explorer Nain Singh Rawat.

The piece of paper celebrates with a small dance.

Patented by Friedrich Soennecken on November 14 1886, the hole puncher has gone down in history as one of the all time great feats of German ingenuity. These doodles can be found on Google's website. The second "g" of the word Google was replaced by a blue sheet of paper on which a hole puncher is seen punching holes.

There are now dozens of iterations of the hole puncher, including the common two-hole punch, the drill punch and even industrial-sized punches for putting holes in sheets of metal. Soennecken called the device "Papierlocher fur Sammelmappen", which means paper hole maker.

N. Korea blasts Trump's 'warmonger' Asia tour
Trump followed up his weird tweet by telling reporters that it would be a "good thing" for him and dictator to become friends. North Korea has conducted dozens of ballistic missile tests in defiance of United Nations sanctions.

Aside from the hole puncher, his major invention was the "round writing" style of calligraphy and the famous fountain pen nib that made the technique both possible and accessible. Soennecken, who was the son of a blacksmith, has several inventions to his credit.

The inventor founded the Soennecken company, an office supplier.

Single hole punches are often used to punch tickets, while multiple hole punches are often used to punch through a number of sheets of paper.

Tuesday marks the 131st anniversary of the hole puncher, the clever tool allowing users to punch identical holes on a sheet of paper.

If the date involved wasn't a giveaway, Google's accompanying blog post makes it pretty clear which side the search engine comes down on, referring to the hole puncher as an essential "artifact of German engineering". And despite being created more than a century ago, the design of the hole punch hasn't changed too much, in that it involves a lever capable of punching through a thick stack of paper.
