The search engine giant replaced the logo on its homepage with an underwater scene. Verne is best known for his works “Around the World in Eighty Days” and “A Journey to the Center of the Earth.”

According to WWWery, the search engine featured an interactive doodle featuring an ocean scene which can be viewed through the portholes of a submarine. People who are using iPad and iPhone can watch the water level move in any direction they wish.

Meanwhile, people who are using traditional desktop computers can also interact with the doodle by moving the joystick on the right hand-side of the logo. This changes the view through the submarine windows to include different views of marine life.

Google has already introduced a limited number of interactive doodle designs in the past. The first fully interactive one was produced last May 2010 to celebrate the 30th birthday of Pac-Man with the character able to be moved by pressing arrow keys on the user’s keyboard.
