Mattel recently held open voting to decide Barbie’s 126th career. Among the choices were News Anchor, Architect, and Computer Engineer. And the winning career (drum roll, please).....
Computer Engineer! Yes, Barbie is now an official computer geek (well, as geeky as Barbie can be, of course.)
Mattel says that the doll’s designers worked side by side with the Society of Women Engineers and the National Academy of Engineering to design realistic clothing and accessories.
Barbie will be decked out in a tee with a binary code pattern and some black knit skinny pants. She’ll also be equipped with all the latest tech including a smartphone, Bluetooth headset, and even a travel bag for her laptop.
The laptop is pink. Of course. As are Barbie's sunglasses.
