Google transforms its logo into a playable Minimoog

To mark what would have been the 78th birthday of the late synth pioneer Bob Moog, Google has turned its logo into a playable Minimoog.

Head over to the Google homepage, and you'll find a cartoon Minimoog-style synth, complete with playable keys, two tweakable oscillators, plus working filter and envelope sections. It's even plugged into a four-track recorder.

15 years ago a Moog on your computer seemed unthinkable, today you have one in your web browser - which is all pretty cool.
