Barbie hired as a Computer Engineer

It was a month ago when we asked you go vote for Barbie to get a job as a computer Engineer, and the results are in.. Congratulations, we did it!  In fact, Barbie is getting 2 new careers from the poll: News Anchor and Computer Engineer.  While I applaud the decision, I do take a bit of issue with the ‘wardrobe’ they selected.

To create an authentic look, Barbie® designers worked closely with the Society of Women Engineers and the National Academy of Engineering to develop the wardrobe and accessories for Computer Engineer Barbie®. Wearing a binary code patterned tee and equipped with all the latest gadgets including a smart phone, Bluetooth headset, and laptop travel bag, Computer Engineer Barbie® is geek chic.

They claim both Barbie’s are available for preorder on their site, although I cannot find them.
