There’s a new Google Doodle honoring Robert “Bob” Moog getting ready to go live tomorrow. However, if you visit the Google Australia homepage, you can enjoy it now, seeing how it’s already tomorrow down under. The same applies with Google Japan. What you’ll find when you navigate there may indeed rival some of Google’s most memorable Doodles, at least in terms of its cool factor and as a time-waster.
For those who may be unaware, Moog invented an analog synthesizer called, surprisingly enough, the Moog Synthesizer. To celebrate Moog’s 78th birthday–you guessed it–Google took a page from the successful Les Paul Doodle and provided us with a playable Moog Synthesizer, which also doubles as the Google Logo, as seen in the lead image. Much like the recordable guitar that was the Les Paul Doodle, the Moog Synthesizer Doodle is capable of recording up to four tracks, which, according to 9to5Google.com, can be shared on Google+.
Aside from the recording feature, there are a number of sound effect options including mixers, oscillators, filters and envelopes. There’s also a dial for pitch on the left side of the Doodle, and all of the effects are usable, giving the creative types tons of options to play with.
It should be noted that some in WebPro office were experiencing difficulty with getting the Moog Synthesizer Doodle to play. When some of my coworkers clicked the keyboard, they were taken to the search results page for Robert Moog instead of getting sound in return. Another coworker discovered that if you open the Les Paul Doodle in a separate window, you can play both Doodles at the same time, meaning we’re just a working drum kit Doodle away from having a workable band that uses Google Doodles as instruments.
As indicated, the Moog Synthesizer Doodle will be live in the United States on May 23rd (tomorrow), but it is already live in Google Australia and Google Japan. Have fun wasting the rest of your day trying to hack out the opening part to Europe’s “The Final Countdown.”

The birthday of Howard Carter, who discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922, is celebrated in the latest Google doodle, a colourful graphic depicting the British archaeologist admiring an array of ancient Egyptian treasures.
The unearthing of the tomb, which had been undisturbed for more than 3,000 years, was the first time that the final resting place of a pharaoh and all his treasures had been found by modern-day archaeologists.
Carter, who was born on 9 May 1874 in London, originally trained as an artist and was sent to Egypt at the age of 17 to assist in the excavation and recording of ancient Egyptian tombs. He was appointed as the first chief inspector of the Egyptian Antiquities Service (EAS) in 1899 and supervised a number of excavations at Thebes, now known as Luxor, before he was transferred in 1904 to the Inspectorate of Lower Egypt.
He was employed from 1907 by Lord Carnarvon to supervise his Egyptian excavations but came under pressure to make a major breakthrough after what the aristocrat regarded as a series of disappointing results.
It came in November 1922, when Carter wrote in his pocket diary: "Discovered tomb under tomb of Ramsses VI investigated same & found seals intact."
He is said recorded as having made the breach into the tomb with a chisel his grandmother had given him for his 17th birthday.
Asked by Carnarvon: "Can you see anything?", archaeologist replied with the now-famous words: "Yes, wonderful things."
Carter then became the first human in 33 centuries to enter the tomb, and spent years documenting the thousands of artefacts from the tomb.
A total of 5,398 objects were found, covering every aspect of ancient Egyptian life, from weapons and chariots to musical instruments, clothes, cosmetics and a treasured lock of the royal grandmother's hair.
He died from Lymphoma in 1939 at the age of 64, just seven years after his excavation ended, and before he could fully publish his findings.
Carter's complete records of the excavation were deposited in the Griffith Institute Archive at the University of Oxford, which has been building an online database.
Gideon Sundback celebrated with an interactive zipper Google doodle on the search engine's homepage. Photograph: Screengrab
Google's latest doodle, a giant zipper running down the centre of the search engine's homepage, marks the birthday of Gideon Sundback, the Swedish-American electrical engineer most commonly associated with the development of the fastening device that revolutionised the clothing industry.
Before Sundback's intervention, the idea for a fastener based on interlocking teeth had circulated among engineers for more than 20 years but no one had perfected it.
His innovation was to place a dimple on the underside of each tooth and a nib on the top that would sit securely within the dimple of the tooth above it.
As a result, the join between two rows of teeth was then strong because no single tooth has enough room to move up or down and come apart. He also created the manufacturing machine for the new zipper.
Born on April 24, 1880, in Småland, Sweden, he moved to Germany following his studies and emigrated in 1905 to the US, where he started to work at Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
A year later, he was hired to work for the Universal Fastener Company in Hoboken, New Jersey, and became its head designer in 1909.
Sundback initially proposed the new zipper as a replacement for hook-and-eye fasteners on women's boots but it had become a regular feature for the flies of trousers and on dresses by the 1930s.
Sundback died of a heart condition in 1954 and was interred at Greendale cemetery in Meadville, Pennsylvania.
