Write Your Name in Bouncy Google Balls

First, there was the Google homepage experiment from Tuesday, which laid out the Google logo in bouncy balls you could click on, jiggle, and bounce. It was done in JavaScript and CSS — contrary to popular belief, it was not HTML5.

Then there was Rob Hawkes’ hack, written in HTML5 canvas.

And now, this: a website where you can post whatever message you want (within the character count limit) and make your own interactive bouncing balls animation. It’s written using Rob’s code.

Long live the web.

Updated: This post originally said Rob’s code was SVG — that was a mistake, it’s HTML5 canvas. Our original post even got it correct. Sleeping at the wheel!
