Google’s Interactive Submarine Doodle Honors Jules Verne

Did you see the Google Doodle today? It’s pretty awesome isn’t it? In fact, it’s one of the most creative and smart doodles they have put up in some time.

Jules Verne Google Doodle

Today’s doodle puts you behind the driving control of a submarine with a “Google” shaped window. You can drag a lever left, right, up and down to tilt the submarine in the set direction. The doodle honors the French author Jules Gabriel Verne who pioneered the science fiction genre and is popularly referred to as the “Father of Science Fiction”. Some of his popular novels include Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873). He wrote about underwater and space travel before the actual means even existed and that probably inspired today’s Google doodle.
