Google Doodle pays tribute to humble punching machine on 131st anniversary

Internationally, the day is celebrated as World Diabetes Day. Soennecken's other innovations such as the calligraphy pen nib, ring binder, and round writing style were all linked to publishing.

The doodle also celebrates the small round pieces of paper that are a byproduct of the punching process, with the Google logo formed from these waste pieces. Soennecken is now a German company that makes office supplies, and images of its early products are available on this archived web page. On a larger scale, it is also used in the printing industry to punch hundreds of sheets of paper. The second "g" of Google has been replaced by a blue sheet of paper. While the origins of the hole punch is a disputed topic, Google has acknowledged the 1886 patent by German inventor Friedrich Soennecken. The speciality of this invention is that its basic design has not changed in over 129 years.

Even though workplaces have evolved over time, this hole puncher has more or less remained unchanged. The hole puncher doodle reaches countries across Europe, North America, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand and India. The doodle has been created by Gerben Steenks. These doodles can be found on Google's website.
