Barbie goes geek

 

Barbie, the popular girl’s doll, has entered a new career: computer software engineer. Her 126th career was chosen on the basis of an online voting campaign at the age of 51 (yes, she looks younger, but her birth date is 1959). Computer Engineer Barbie is wearing glasses, a Bluetooth headset and a glamorous look rarely seen in IT departments.

According to its manufacturer Mattel, Computer Engineer Barbie “inspires a new generation of girls to explore this important high-tech industry, which continues to grow and need future female leaders”.
