Google "Buckyball" Doodle Is A New Time Waster

Do you remember the Google PAC-MAN Doodle, which cost users 4.82 million hours and $120 million and also created quite a few issues for users? Well, the PAC-MAN game got a permanent home at Google, however, it looks like Google has just come up with another time-waster Doodle, this time for Google New Zealand.


The Google NZ Doodle celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the Buckyball, which are molecules composed entirely of carbon often found in the form of a hollow sphere or tube (More at Wikipedia). The Buckyball Doodle is also the second interactive Doodle used on a Google homepage.

When you visit you will see the Buckyball take form and can play around with it turning it with your mouse, however, unlike PAC-MAN, there is no coin slots for this, so play around with it till you want.

Update: This is a Global and is being rolled out to countries as the clock strikes 12AM.
