A number of identical holes punched out from construction paper are across the floor as part of the Google logo. And in honor of the hole puncher's longevity, Google created an illustration of the device as a Google Doodle. Variations of the machine are commonly found in offices today, even in the digital age, and is not likely to change much as long as humans continue to use paper. It challenges whether our grip or downward force is strong enough to puncture the stack, pushing out a neat cylinder of future confetti - or whether we had to reduce the load, like a dejected weightlifter.

The tool, common in offices today, was the creation of German inventor Friedrich Soennecken.

The doodle paid tribute to the German inventor Friedrich Soennecken, who filed a patent for the hole puncher November 14, 1886.

Google on Tuesday marked the 131st anniversary of the invention of the hole puncher with a doodle. The liveliness demonstrates a sheet of paper doing a little dance in the wake of being punched.

Google Doodle recently honoured Urdu author Abdul Qavi Desnavi and Himalayan explorer Nain Singh Rawat. Soennecken was the son of a blacksmith who founded his own company, F Soennecken Verlag, in 1875.

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. On a larger scale, it is also used in the printing industry to punch hundreds of sheets of paper. He devised a tool to make small holes in paper. ISO 838 is the commonly used punching machine, apart from that single-hole punchers are used for various purposes like validating tickets or marking used playing cards.
