    How does it work?

    Using a lever and spring system, the hole puncher allows the user to line up cylindrical blades and punch holes through stacked sheets of paper with very little effort.

    While modern double-hole punchers now adhere to a standard international measurement, known as ISO 838, single hole punchers are also commonly used for validating tickets and marking used playing cards.

    The design has also been scaled up to large machines that can punch through hundreds of sheets at a time, for use in the printing industry.

    Over the years, versions of the hole puncher have been developed to work on leather, cloth, thin plastic and even sheet metal.

    What does Google have to say?

    "It’s a familiar scene with a familiar tool: the gentle rat-tat-tat on the table as you square up a dangerously thick stack of papers, still warm from the printer," Google wrote in a blog post.

    "The quiet anticipation and heady uncertainty as you ask yourself the ultimate question: can it cut through all this?

    "The satisfying, dull “click!” of the blade as it punches through the sheets.

    "The series of crisp, identical holes it produces, creating a calming sense of unity among an otherwise unbound pile of loose leaf.

    "And finally, the delightful surprise of the colorful confetti byproduct – an accidental collection of colorful, circular leftovers.

    "Today we celebrate 131 years of the hole puncher, an understated – but essential – artifact of German engineering.

    "As modern workplaces trek further into the digital frontier, this centuries-old tool remains largely, wonderfully, the same."
