Google's logo has gone interactive for its latest incarnation to celebrate the birthday of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" author Jules Verne.
Made to appear like portholes in a submarine, the 3D-view looks out into an artistic interpretation of the ocean - complete with fish and plants of varying colors. A switch allows users to adjust the view up or down, left or right, to see all the underwater marvels, including a pair of deep sea divers.
Byte: Today is Jules Verne's 183rd birthday. Vernes is the science-fiction author who 140 years ago penned "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea." He wrote about space, air, and underwater travel and is known by some as the 'Father of Science Fiction.' Other works include "A Journey to the Center of the Earth" and "Around the World in Eighty Days."
