A Peek Into Google’s Jules Verne Tribute (February 8, 2011)

This is just a fun little video demo into the inner workings of today’s Google Doodle. Nothing you can’t do yourself with Firebug or Web Inspector (built into WebKit browsers such as Safari and Chrome). But I liked this doodle so much, I wanted to talk about it!

Disclaimer: I know the difference between HTML5 and CSS3, but I’m not much one for pedantic nomenclature (however, I am apparently supportive of pedantic words like nomenclature). For the purposes of this video, webkit transforms and transitions are part of HTML5.

EDIT: Apparently I missed that the doodle has accelerometer support for devices that support it! Confirmed that it works on my MacBook Pro in Chrome.
