You’ve probably already noticed, but the the latest “Google Doodle” is a design comprised of Google balls that curiously move around the screen depending on your mouse’s position. These interactive colored Google balls finally settle and form the Google logo when left untouched.
What is the significance of this, you ask? Your guess is as good as mine. As we know, Google changes their homepage logo regularly to reflect famous birthdays, holidays and world events. Usually when a user clicks on the Google Doodle, the significance is explained within the search results. But not this time!
Some commentators believe this Google Doodle is an exercise in HTML5 which will give developers more flexibility to create an interactive web experience. Others say today’s Google balls are just a demo of what Google’s browser, Chrome, can do. A Google rep was tightlipped and said: “Today’s doodle is fast, fun and interactive, just the way we think search should be.”
Even though today’s design caught our intention, it is not the first interactive Google Doodle. The most popular one was the Pac Man game back in May that marked the 30th birthday of the classic arcade game.
Without much to go on, all we can do is enjoy this Google Doodle for what it is–something new.
