Today's doodle, celebrating Verne's 183rd birthday, tries to capture that sense of adventure and exploration. Using CSS3 (and with help from Google's 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. 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.
So voyage below (and above) the waves to see what you can discover… just make sure to keep an eye out for the giant squid.
