Hole Punch History: Google Celebrates The 131st Anniversary Of The Hole Puncher

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

These days, standardised hole punchers incorporate a compartment to collect the confetti left behind by the process and can be adjusted to fit different paper sizes.

The hole puncher employs a lever and spring system to allow the user to line up and punch holes with cylindrical blades through stacked sheets of paper easily. The competition, called Google 4 Doodle, has been held every year since 2010 and showcases interpretations of the Google logo created by children in India. These are a reference to the small circular bits of paper that are leftover after we punch holes in the sheets of papers. However, the first recorded patents for a paper hole puncher was published by an American man named Benjamin Smith in 1885. While the origins of the hole punch is a disputed topic, Google has acknowledged the 1886 patent by German inventor Friedrich Soennecken. 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.

Qualcomm rejects Broadcom's $100 billion-plus takeover bid
Shares of Qualcomm rose as much as 2.5 percent to $66.17, while those of Broadcom fell as much as 1.3 percent to $261.55. Broadcom's bid may provide motivation for Qualcomm to find a resolution, said Chris Caso, an analyst with Raymond James.

To celebrate the 131st anniversary of that filing, Google has created an animated doodle that demonstrates the joy often associated with a successful punch. Soennecken was the son of a blacksmith who founded his own company, F Soennecken Verlag, in 1875. On a larger scale, it is also used in the printing industry to punch hundreds of sheets of paper. Along with the hole punch, the entrepreneur is also accredited with the invention of the ring binder. The more drawn out the lever, the more sheets of paper can be punched through with the same negligible power.

The design of the hole puncher has not changed much in the 131 years since its invention.
