132th Birthday of Gideon Sundback

                                           

Gideon Sundback (April 24, 1880 – June 21, 1954) was a Swedish-American electrical engineer. Gideon Sundbäck is most commonly associated with his work in the development of the zipper.

Sundback made several advances in the development of the zipper between 1906 and 1914, while working for companies that later evolved into Talon, Inc. He built upon the previous work of other engineers such as Elias Howe, Max Wolff, and Whitcomb Judson.

A zipper is a thingy that joins two pieces of material together.

The zipper is used everywhere, on clothing, pencil cases, boots and suitcases, wallets, and many other things. 

How many can you think of?
