Google is paying homage to a device that has no place in the digital world: the hole puncher.

Basically, a hole puncher is used to create holes in papers to assemble and file them together. Even though workplaces have evolved over time, this hole puncher has more or less remained unchanged. 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 German went on to establish the Soennecken office supply company and was later awarded an honorary title from the University of Bonn.

Uber Is Close to Deal to Sell Stake to SoftBank
The agreement follows an Oct 3 Uber board meeting, in which directors voted to move forward with an investment from SoftBank. If SoftBank doesn't get enough buyers, it could propose a higher price or walk away.

The hole puncher was created back in 1886 by Friedrich Soennecken, a German inventor who is also responsible for thinking up ring binder.

Google on Tuesday marked the 131st anniversary of the invention of the hole puncher with a doodle.

Artist and illustrator Gerben Steenks has drawn the famous Google logo using familiar circular disks, bringing the Doodle alive when a hole puncher gives eyes to a blue sheet of paper. Soennecken, who was the son of a blacksmith, has several inventions to his credit. The second "g" is made of a paper that the hole puncher punches in the doodle. Besides the hole puncher, he invented a binder and a special nib for ink pens that are used for calligraphy.

Mevani even slammed those who trolled him on social media enquiring when his "CD" would be released. While speaking to DNA, Shah said that the tweet would not make too much difference.

Now Google has paid tribute to the well-loved tool with an delightful animation. The liveliness demonstrates a sheet of paper doing a little dance in the wake of being punched.

Google describes the hole puncher as an understated but essential artifact of German engineering. These doodles can be found on Google's website.
