Imagine a world with the zipper (zip or fly); a world with pants without zippers, dresses without zippers, bags without zippers - interesting!!
The Swedish-American inventor of the ubiquitous zipper, Gideon Sundback if alive, would have been 132 today.
Google has decided to honour him today by dedicating its doodle to him. Just go to Google, and you will find a giant zipper running down the centre of the global search engine's home page. In fact, if you drag your mouse down to unzip the zipper, it will split the screen, including the search textbox and reveal the relevant results for the name Gideon Sundback
