Google doodles Calder

Today marks the birthday of legendary sculptor Alexander Calder (1898-1976), and to honor this event, Google has ingeniously re-created their logo as an interactive mobile similar to the ones Calder is famous for. When the user clicks and drags the various panes and shapes of the mobile, it begins to rotate in the direction desired.  Keen-eyed users will notice the faint drop shadow below the search box that mimics the sculpture’s movements above.
