Pluck Yourself Silly On Google Today
In honor of late musician and solid-body electric guitar inventor Les Paul, who would have turned 96 today, Google's home page is transformed into a digital approximation of a guitar. Each of the ten "strings" that make up the logo today sounds off, changes color and even vibrates when you roll over it with the mouse.
There's even a button that lets you record your audio doodlings and save it for later, like Rocks Off did a few minutes ago We call it, er... "Abstraction No. 1."
We'd like to know if anyone could compose an actual song or play an existing piece of music on this thing. It's a little bit beyond our abilities, but it is a fun thing to fool around with for a little while instead of doing things like, you know, working.
