Friday in Spain, we shared a doodle for inventor and engineer Leonardo Torres Quevedo. Torres Quevedo is credited with creating the world's first computer game—El Ajedrecista, an algorithmically powered machine that could automatically play a game of chess against a human opponent. He also designed the Whirlpool Aero Car, a cable car over the Niagara Whirlpool  originally powered by cows. Our doodle today nods to both of these inventions.

If Torres Quevedo's name sounds familiar to you, it might be because we also celebrated him earlier this year, on the anniversary of El Ajedrecista. Read more in our blog post from October:
