Google is looking fly today!

By jpistori

If you have used the Google search engine today you may have noticed the page looks a bit different. We often see the Google logo displayed with designs celebrating various current events, but never an interactive page such as this. Check out some of the past Google Logo Designs on inspirationfeed.com.

Today the Google page displays a huge interactive zipper and the actual logo looks like it is sewn fabric. Click and drag the zipper and you will see a really cool animation of the page being zipped away to reveal the search results page. This design is to commemorate the 132nd birthday of Gideon Sunback, a Swedish engineer credited with helping to develop the modern zipper.

Check out Google’s Sundback doodle in action in the video below, or try it for yourself by visiting Google.com.

    Cool effect, Google! Only the zipper opens to a blank page, and from thereon you have to scroll down one page for each new Google search…!

      Hmm. For me it opens to a search results page with links to Gideon Sunback. What browser are you using? I think this animation is using HTML5 so older browsers (especially Internet Explorer) may not display the page correctly.
