In celebration of Moog creator Robert Moog’s 78th birthday today, Google made a playable Moog Synthesizer Doodle. The Moog Synthesizer was one of the first widely used electronic musical instruments that was created in the late 1960’s. The fun thing about the Google Doodle is that it’s playable and visitors are able to try the synthesizer by clicking on the keys, tweaking the sound via the knobs, recording their music and even sharing their creations with friends via the link shortcut button. This is one of the better Doodle’s I’ve seen and it’s up there with the Google playable Pac-man Doodle created a couple of years ago. I hope that Google archives this doodle so that it can still be used once Moog’s 78th birthday is over.
