Google pays tribute to the hole puncher

Google pays tribute to the hole puncher

Basically, a hole puncher is used to create holes in papers to assemble and file them together.

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. The animation was created by Gerben Steenks, a doodle designer at Google.

Google's blog post on hole punch wrote: It's a familiar scene with a familiar tool: the gentle rat-tat-tat on the table as you square up a dangerously thick stack of papers, still warm from the printer.

"The satisfying, boring "click!" of the blade as it punches through the sheets". These doodles can be found on Google's website.

Google's homepage features an animated sequence featuring a hole puncher hovering over a piece of paper and punching out two eyes and a happy face. The blue sheet then proceeds to do a little jig.

The hole puncher was invented by German entrepreneur Friedrich Soennecken who also invented the ring binder, CNET reported.

"#Google #Doodle pays tribute to hole puncher on 131st anniversary! missed #ChildrensDay? asked one Twitter user". 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 inventor founded the Soennecken company, an office supplier. Besides the hole puncher, he invented a binder and a special nib for ink pens that are used for calligraphy.

Google describes the hole puncher as an understated but essential artifact of German engineering. The more drawn out the lever, the more sheets of paper can be punched through with the same negligible power. A year later the first decorative paper puncher was launched, bringing a new trend in the market.

A cornerstone of stationery cupboards across the globe, the hole puncher celebrates its 131st anniversary today (November 14).
