Google celebrates Jules Verne's birthday!

Check the Google logo on their homepage - the lever to the right lets you go up, down, forward & back
See what's at the bottom of the ocean
Google has a special logo up today on all Google properties for the author who wrote Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Jules Verne was born today, February 8th, 183 years ago. Google wanted to wish him a happy birthday and thank him for all the people has inspired going forward.

Today's doodle, celebrating Verne's 183rd birthday, tries to capture that sense of adventure and exploration. Using CSS3 (and with help from our resident tech wizards Marcin Wichary and Kris Hom), the doodle enables anyone to navigate the Nautilus down (nearly) 20,000 leagues with the simple pull of a lever. And for those using devices with built-in accelerometers and the latest versions of Google Chrome or Firefox, it's even simplerjust tilt your device in the direction you want to explore and the Nautilus will follow.
