But the predictions and all flew up in air and Googledoodle made even an interesting and surprising update on Today morning.Well, that sounds like 131st Hole Punch celebration in the Eye of Google Doodle rather making a Doodle gif of Children's day.
Google said: "Today we celebrate 131 years of the hole puncher, an understated - but essential - artefact of German engineering". A hole puncher is a common office tool that creates holes in sheets of paper so that the sheets can easily be collected in a binder or folder. Soennecken, who was the son of a blacksmith, has several inventions to his credit.
The doodle likewise praises the little round bits of paper that are a result of the punching procedure, with the Google logo framed from these waste pieces.
Aside from the hole puncher, his major invention was the "round writing" style of calligraphy and the famous fountain pen nib that made the technique both possible and accessible. Soennecken is now a German company that makes office supplies, and images of its early products are available on this archived web page. The second "g" of Google has been replaced by a blue sheet of paper.

Created by Gerben Steenks, the doodle pays tribute to entrepreneur and inventor Friedrich Soennecken, who filed a patent for the hole puncher on November 14, 1886. The gap puncher's outline has not changed much in a long time since its development. The more drawn out the lever, the more sheets of paper can be punched through with the same negligible power.
Meanwhile, single-hole punchers have been used by train conductors for decades as an easy way to validate tickets. However, the first recorded patents for a paper hole puncher was published by an American man named Benjamin Smith in 1885.
