Zipper Inventor Gideon Sundback on Google Logo

Have you noticed there's something special on Google logo today? There's giant zipper running down the center of the search engine's homepage, Google made an awesome zipper doodle to celebrate Gideon Sundback birthday. Gideon Sundback was well known as the inventor of Zipper, He's a Swedish-American electrical engineer most commonly associated with the development of the fastening device that revolutionized the clothing industry.

His innovation was to place a dimple on the underside of each tooth and a nib on the top that would sit securely within the dimple of the tooth above it.

As a result, the join between two rows of teeth was then strong because no single tooth has enough room to move up or down and come apart. He also created the manufacturing machine for the new zipper.

Well the word's Zipper isn't originally coined by him. It came from B.F. Goodrich who decided to use it in their new boots.
