Google doodle in honor of synthesizer inventor Robert Moog

Today, May 23, is the birthday of Robert Moog, a pioneer in electronic music who invented the first playable keyboard synthesizer. In honor of Moog, Google is featuring an interactive doodle in the form of a virtual synthesizer. (Check it out here.)

You can play by clicking on the piano keys, or by using your computer's keyboard. For a more in-depth user guide, click here.

Experiment with different synthesizer sounds, compose your own tunes, and then record and share them with friends. Someone has already used the doodle to record Gary Numan's "Cars" and Soft Cell's "Tainted Love."

Have fun!
