Google Doodle Commemorates Dennis Gabor Birthday and Holography
Google Doodle Celebrates Dennis Gabor Birthday: Another Google Doodle was in Google’s website as of now. Apparently, if you have noticed it, it was for the celebration of Dennis Gabor’s 110th birthday. But who is Dennis Gabor anyway?
Denni Gabor is the famous inventor of Holography for which he later received the 1971 Nobel Prize in Physics. If you don’t know what holography is, it is usually used in 3D and sci-fi movies where an object appears to be present when actually, it’s not. I remember that this holography technology was used in the movie Matrix and in some other movies such as the Avatar.
You can also view these holograms in Nokia batteries nowadays. You can clearly notice if a battery is fake or not through these holograms placed at the back of each Nokia batteries. Several uses of holograms and holography technology are seen in the areas of data storage, security, art, etc.
Well, thanks for inventing holograms and the theory of holography Sir Dennis Gabor. Happy 110th birthday to you! And thanks to Google for that wonderful holographic image of Google Doodle. Above is a thumbnail of the holographic image of Google present in all Google websites as of now.

Josef Frank (born in Baden bei Wien on July 15, 1885; died in Stockholm on January 8, 1967) was an Austrian/Swedish architect of Jewish ancestry. He worked with Oskar Strnad and was linked to the Vienna Circle. In 1933 he moved to Sweden, where he worked for the Svenskt Tenn design company and produced numerous design items until his death. In 1965 he won the Grand Austrian State Prize for architecture.

The Scandinavian interior design style has been mentioned previously in a few posts. Now what about some pure philosophy on a day like this? I’ve been contemplating the words of Josef Frank, the “creator”, or may I say father, of the Scandinavian (or Swedish) interior design style. Josef Frank was born 1885 in Vienna and moved to Sweden in 1933, where he started working for the design company Svenskt Tenn and produced numerous design items until his death in 1967. With a pic from Svenskt Tenn is the middle, here’s Josef Frank and some of his designs:
