Google Doodle Honors Jules Verne

Google is celebrating the 183rd birthday of science fiction author Jules Verne with a special interactive 'tilting' Google doodle. In honor of Verne's most famous novel, '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,' the logo has been transformed into the portholes of a submarine.

A driving panel allows the viewer to take on the vaunted role of Captian Nemo and dive the submarine to the depths of the digital ocean, where shipwrecks and a giant squid dwell. The logo duplicates the swaying of the sea so accurately, wooziness may ensue.
