  • Google doodle hole punch history punching machine hole puncher

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. Well, I thought yesterday what Google Doodle will surprise the entire world on children's day 2017. Later hole punch was patented by Benjamin Smith, who named it "Conductor's punch".

Soennecken introduced the two-hole punch and the ring binder which is used to organise documents by punching holes in sheets of paper often for the goal of collecting the sheets in a binder or folder.

The German scientist Friedrich Soennecken, born in 1848, filed patent for the hole puncher on November 14, 1886.

In the USA, the first patent for a hole puncher was given to Benjamin Smith from MA. Brooks called the device a ticket punch, according to ThoughtCo. "The quiet anticipation and heady uncertainty as you ask yourself the ultimate question: can it cut through all this?"

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 series of crisp, identical holes it produces, creating a calming sense of unity among an otherwise unbound pile of loose leaf.

The irony of Google celebrating a tool that it's doing more than anyone else to make obsolete shouldn't be lost on anyone.

It's not only helped corral dangerously thick reams of papers for easier organization, the hole puncher has also provided many a test of physical strength. "As modern workplaces trek further into the digital frontier, this centuries-old tool remains largely, wonderfully, the same", Google wrote of the office item after describing how it feels to use one including the hearing of the "satisfying, boring 'click!'"
