Frank Zamboni's 112th Birthday Is Celebrated With Google Doodle
The Google Doodle will be up for the rest of the day, today only.On Wednesday, Google published perhaps the sleekest Google Doodle yet.
The search giant is celebrating the birthday of Frank Zamboni, creator of (what else?) the Zamboni ice-smoothing machine, with an 8-bit video game on its homepage.
The world's first "ice resurfacing machine" was invented by the Los Angeles-based mechanic for his family's skating rink. It quickly became a hit at hockey matches, cutting the once labor-intensive job of ice resurfacing from an "hour-and-a-half" of work for a shoveler to a matter of minutes, the Washington Post notes.
