Google beyond what meets the eye

We use Google very frequently for data search, directions or just to check if the internet is working. But we don’t really explore Google. To think of it, the only fun thing that comes to mind or one associates Google with is the Google Doodle. There are many more interesting things that can be done on Google. Here are 12 hidden features that I know of and there’s no harm in trying them at home.

Skew the Google page! Type “askew” in the search box and see the result.

See the Spherical play of the Google main page, by simply typing Google sphere and click on I’m Feeling Lucky. Thank you Mr.doob for the effect!

Forget Google earth try Google mars. Google also lets you explore mars. Just go to http://www.google.com/mars

Create your own beatbox tunes with Google translate. Omit the vowels, enter the consonants and click on listen.

Search binary in Google. The number of results will be in binary format instead of the usual decimal.

If you speak Star Trek then it may interest you that Google also has a Klingon search.

Watching a video on Youtube and it’s still buffering, the waiting part is so boring! Type 1980 instead and play a game on the page itself and see a glass shatter over you video. Some cool effects I tell you.

Find the loneliest number on Google and yes it can prove why.

Google does not recognize period ‘.’ as a character in the email address, so add as many periods as you want to your email id and you’ll still be redirected to the same account.

You don’t need to go to a specific site to check the flight status or package status, just Google it and Google will give you the result.

Google chrome also has its task manager, type Shift+ Esc to check the status.

Visit Google Earth, press Ctrl+ A and fly over the terrain.
