New Delhi: To commemorate Robert Moog's 78th birth anniversary Google, today, replaced its usual homepage logo with an interactive synthesizer doodle.
The doodle includes a synthesizer to let users compose music of their choice. To the right of the synthesizer is a 4-track tape recorder that lets you record, play back the recorded music and share songs via short links or Google+.
You can use your mouse or keyboard on the Moog doodle's keys and dials to make nearly limitless sounds. Robert Moog, who is better known as the self-described geeky-toolmaker-turned-visionary, was honoured with a Grammy Award for technical achievement in 2002.
Here is a demonstration video that will teach you how to play with today's doodle:
