Google Zipper Doodle For Gideon Sundback

April 24 marks a special day for Gideon Sundback, the Swedish inventor of the zipper as search company commemorates his birthdate today with a Google Doodle zipper.

The Google homepage shows an embroidered Google logo with a zipper running in the middle. Dragging your mouse down to unzip it will split the screen, including the search textbox and reveal the relevant results for the name Gideon Sundback.

It's certainly a fun Google Doodle, and it's always fun to refresh the Google homepage and unzip everything again and again. In any case, we'd like to thank Gideon Sundback (April 24, 1880 – June 21, 1954) for his wonderful invention.
