So sitting here looking out of my living room window across a very grey, cold and gloomy London I thought it might be time to spread some joy across the net.
So here are 6 fun tricks to try with Google.
1. Do a barrel roll trick:
Go to Google.com and simply type in the search box “do a barrel roll” and see the magic. The page will rotate two times.
2. Atari Breakout Trick:
Go to Google images and type “Atari Breakout”. The images will be transformed into blocks and you can play Breakout, classic arcade game of the 70’s era.
3. Tilt page trick:
No this is not back to the 70’s again (that’s a pinball reference from the younger crowd). Search for “tilt” on Google and see how your page tilts a little.
Search for “recursion” on Google and you will get stuck in an infinite loop much like recursion. Recursion means repeating. Google will show “did you mean recursion?” every time searching for recursion. Ok well that is not really fun, not like playing Breakout but at least you learn what recursion means. (Every day is a school day)
5. Google Gravity:
Type in “Google Gravity” in their homepage and then click on the “I’ m feeling lucky” button. It will redirect you to one of the fun projects called “Google Gravity”. It is a Chrome Experiment done by Hi-Res. See how gravity bring Google to its knees. You can even search anything.
6. Zerg Rush:
When you type “zerg rush” in Google .The ‘o’ and ‘o’ of Google appears from the top and the right of the Google page and slowly eats up the whole page leaving nothing. It’s fun to watch.
A rotated version of Google.com, kind of google tricks. Provides you with a reversed Google site, known as Google backwards. You can also do surfing on elgoog.im, it’s fun.
Well they cheered me up !
