Workplaces have evolved over the years to become more digital but the "hole puncher" - a simple device, which with one satisfying clunk helps turn a pile of disordered sheets into a neat stack ready for the binder - still remains an essential tool. Well, I thought yesterday what Google Doodle will surprise the entire world on children's day 2017. The doodle animation also shows a small piece of paper, the byproduct of punching process doing a little jig.
The doodle paid tribute to the German inventor Friedrich Soennecken, who filed a patent for the hole puncher November 14, 1886.
While not quite as indispensable as the stapler, the hole puncher has been a staple of business offices for more than a century. But the predictions and all flew up in air and Google doodle made even an interesting and surprising update on Today morning.Well, that sounds like 131st Hole Punch celebration in the Eye of Google Doodle rather making a Doodle gif of Children's day. Soennecken called the device "Papierlocher fur Sammelmappen", which means paper hole maker.
Google's tribute to the hole puncher.
He is also credited for inventing binder and a special nib for ink pens that was suitable for calligraphy. Soennecken is now a well-known German company that specialises in office supplies.
The design of the hole puncher has not changed much in the 131 years since its invention.
To celebrate the 131st anniversary of that filing, Google has created an animated doodle that demonstrates the joy often associated with a successful punch.
It still uses a lever and spring system, but these days standardised hole punchers have an added compartment to collect the paper confetti left behind.
