Awesome Stanislaw Lem Google Doodle

I didn’t realize this was only on the French version of google (http://www.google.fr), but today they published the best Google doodle I’ve seen yet in honor of Stanlislaw Lem (Solaris, etc., also turned into a film of the same name Andrei Tarkovsky and again by Steven Soderbergh).  Who else but Google would let you blow up robots with 7-segment displays on their home page (it’s a rhetorical question but if there’s an answer I’d totally love to hear about that too!)?


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE.

  1. This thing’s a total trip!

  2. its on google.co.uk too. damn cool

  3. i liked it alot, but i couldnt shake the feeling that google would be analysing my performance and changing its website based on the results of this mass iq/response/attention span/what you pay attention to, game.
    i dont know if its even possible to analyse detailed movements of the mouse etc, but if it is i can see some weird stuff going on at google with this data.

  4. Just found it – great fun!

  5. Stanisław not Stanlislaw 😉

  6. The doodle is about the book “The Cyberiad”, by Lem, and the two constructors depicted in it Trurl and Klapaucius.
    It is about some of the aventures they live in it.
    I have read that book one dozen times!

  7. Hooray! I <3 Lem!

  8. google.pl should be the first to mention as Lem was polish :o)

  9. Well, it looks like it is displayed based on IP address – I get this doodle both on google.pl and google.com.

    Stanisław Lem wrote awsome books….

  10. On google.it too…I suppose it’s displayed in all european countries

  11. I would think it’s in all non-US countries; US gets the Thanksgiving doodle, but other countries don’t celebrate Thanksgiving or celebrate it on different days (e.g. Canada.)

    Was I supposed to do anything with the nose etc. in the last puzzle?
