Google : “Do a Barrel Roll” - Another Great Application by Google
Remember Google Gravity? If not, just type Google gravity in search bar and click on the Google link. If yes, there is something new for you. Google : “Do a Barrel Roll” is the coolest things google has ever done.
Wooow…did you see that. The whole Google search page just did a barrel role. Some speculate that this is Google's takeoff on apples iPhone and ipads which have built in accelerometers that tells a device when it is being moved, rotated or propped up on one end. However, it looks like Google’s attempt to invoke Nintendo’s Firefox. Makes much more sense!!!
However, Google gave a clear explanation saying “Today’s fun query, ‘do a barrel roll,’ was created by a Google software engineer with the primary goal of entertaining users — while showcasing the power of CSS3, a presentation feature of modern browsers. The “do a barrel roll” query, which causes the search page to spin, will remain in place for a while.”
The application has already created a buzz in the blog community. One can find completely diverse comments from users over twitter and other social sites.
