Mr. Doob’s Google Space

I would include an image, but the website won’t let me upload images again 🙁

Google Space is a clever little piece: It gives you the interface of the Google search home page, except every GUI element has 2D physics applied to it. All the parts of the page simply float out of their original places, to drift around the screen.

To me, watching the initial transition from banality to playful floating is really wonderful. Also, testing the interface reveals that you can still search as you normally would, albeit the search result appear in the same screen instead of taking you to a new page.

Personally, I think It’s a shame that Google Space is limited only to the single homepage. It’s really be something if you could go through any of the other google pages with this effect applied to them.
