Barbie Computer Engineer coming your way!

Thanks to all who voted.

Even though computer engineering barbie as not the winner (news anchor barbie was)…Mattel is going to build computer engineering barbie for winter 2010!  details here

Barbie will be wearing a “binary code patterned tee and equipped with the latest gadgets- smart phone, blue tooth head set, and laptop.”  I’m not a fan of her leggings.  As another blogger pointed out on geek feminism, jeans would have been better.

  1. There was a facebook site that asked people to vote for computer engineering barbie and the thing that I thought was interesting was that she was wearing goggles and holding a hard drive. When I saw it, I asked myself 2 questions, will this make girls want to become engineers and is this an accurate depiction of a computer engineer.

    The description you’re giving is a lot more appealing and yes, jeans would be better in my opinion :-)
