Google doodle tribute to Robert Moog lets you play, record music
The Google doodle of May 23, 2012 features a playable keyboard

MANILA, Philippines – Google has done it again. 

Keeping with its tradition of ingenious, entertaining, and sometimes touching “Google doodles,” Google today (May 23) came out with a tribute to Moog sythesizer inventor Robert Arthur “Bob” Moog, who was born on May 23, 1934.


Today's (May 23) Google doodle is as interactive as it gets. 


Today’s Google doodle features a playable keyboard and mixer, along with oscillators and filters. The fun doesn’t stop there–the “tape deck” on the right lets you record your musical creations, which you can later share through a link or through Google+. 

According to a report on The Next Web, Moog is considered to be “the father of the modern synthesizer.”
