To celebrate Jules Verne’s birthday – the father of sci-fi and author of the classic Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea – Google have created their Doodle of the day with their logo based on board the underwater submersible, the Nautilus; as if you were looking out through the portholes.

Jules Verne Birthday Google Doodle

The doodle itself is user controlled so you can go deep in the depths, turn to simulate a submarine’s movements, and rise back up to the surface again – pretty cool – and just like the author’s sea-based novel, pretty imaginative.

Below is a video of what it looks/feels like in action.
