Today (November 14) is the 131st Anniversary of the Hole Puncher, the humble stationery product that is a part of most homes and offices. The animation shows a sheet of paper doing a little jig after being punched. History of the punching machineOn November 14, in the year 1886, German scientist Friedrich Soennecken filed a patent for the punching machine. Soennecken called the device "Papierlocher fur Sammelmappen", which means paper hole maker. That apart, despite moving towards an increasingly digital era, the hole puncher remains as relevant today as it was when it was invented 131 years ago.

In addition to the hole puncher, he is also accredited to the "round writing" style of calligraphy, and the famous fountain pen nib that made the technique both possible and accessible. 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. A hole puncher is a common office tool that creates holes in sheets of paper so that the sheets can easily be collected in a binder or folder. However, the first recorded patents for a paper hole puncher was published by an American man named Benjamin Smith in 1885. Another U.S. inventor Charles Brooks was also credited with improving on the German-derived device in 1893. The gap puncher has either single or numerous opening punch and a long lever which pushes the edge through the sheets of paper giving the same number of gaps as required.

While Google has dedicated its doodle to the 131st Anniversary of the hole puncher in 2017, it has been hosting a competition for children in India to celebrate Children's Day over the past few years.
