Google Doodle – Playable, Recordable and Sharable Synthesizer for Robert Moog’s Birthday

In celebration of Robert Moog’s 78th birthday, Google launched a new interactive doodle on Wednesday (23 May 2012).  This synthesizer allows users to play and record tracks and share them on Google+.

Google Doodle Moog synthesizer

Robert Moog (May 23, 1934 – August 21, 2005), commonly known as Bob Moog, is one of the key people in electronic music.  He invented the Moog synthesizer, one of the first widely used electronic musical instruments.  This is why today’s Google Doodle is a synthesizer.

You’ll notice that apart from the clickable knobs that you can play with, there are also play, record, link and Google+ buttons.  It is quite obvious that you can play and record your own tracks, just like the Les Paul guitar Google Doodle.  This time, Google added a Google+ button, it seems that users can share their masterpieces on Google+.  This button will only appear if you are logged into Google.

If you want to know more about this gentleman, you can check out his Wikipedia page, or knowledge graph that appears in Google search result page:
