Thanks to Google, Here's a Cool Trick for Anyone on a Mac Laptop

Only by using the phantom technology from one of his novels, Jules Verne would be celebrating his 183rd birthday today. Author of such science fiction classics as Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and A Journey to the Center of the Earth, Verne pioneered an entire literary genre and influenced countless authors, artists, and filmmakers with his works. As such, Google's resident nerds created a eye-popping tribute to him with today's Google Doodle.

On their official blog, Google Doodler Jennifer Hom explains:

"Today's doodle, celebrating Verne's 183rd birthday, tries to capture that sense of adventure and exploration. Using CSS3 (and with help from our resident tech wizards Marcin Wichary and Kris Hom), the doodle enables anyone to navigate the Nautilus down (nearly) 20,000 leagues with the simple pull of a lever."

With beautiful storybook graphics, visitors can plunder the deep and explore the plant and animal life aquatic. But for anyone on a Mac laptop, there's something extra.

Hom writes, "And for those using devices with built-in accelerometers and the latest versions of Google Chrome or Firefox, it's even simpler -- just tilt your device in the direction you want to explore and the Nautilus will follow."

It's seldom that MacBook owners ever get to utilize their device's accelerometers, but thanks to Google, you have a cool trick that'll entertain you for the next, oh, one to two minutes.
