Patented by Friedrich Soennecken on November 14 1886, the hole puncher has gone down in history as one of the all time great feats of German ingenuity.

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.

Google describes the hole puncher as an understated but essential artifact of German engineering.
