The iconic punching machine, an office, school, and college staple for many generations, turned 131 years old on Tuesday.

Invented by Friedrich Soennecken, Soennecken filed a patent for the hole puncher or Papierlocher für Sammelmappen (paper hole maker for binding) on 14 November 1886.

Son of a blacksmith, Soennecken invented the hole puncher, along with a binder, and a special nib for ink pens that was suitable for calligraphy.



A hole puncher provides a simple solution to organise documents by punching holes in sheets of paper often for the purpose of collecting the sheets in a binder or folder. A typical hole punch has a long lever which is used to push a bladed cylinder straight through a number of sheets of paper.

World’s most reliable and widely used search engine Google turned 19 couple months ago. Google has been making interactive Doodles that celebrate the birthdays of prominent scientists, musicians, and others.

The search giant currently serves 4.5 billion users across 160 countries, allowing searches in 123 different languages.

Over the last 19 years, Google has grown to become one of the biggest technology companies in the world.
