Google displays animated logo on home page

We’ve seen a great number of cool Google logos throughout the years, but today’s doodle, available on the U.S. version of Google’s search engine, is one of the most intriguing yet.

The logo is animated, and reacts to the pointer of your mouse: move it closer to the logo, and the particles will disperse, “running away” from the mouse pointer.

Unlike some other Google doodles, this one is unclickable, so we don’t know for sure what’s the story behind it. It could be Google’s birthday which falls on either September 4th, September 7th, or September 27th (depending when the folks at Google decide to eat cake), but Google usually celebrates it on the last date.

If Google indeed chose September 7th as the date to celebrate its 12th birthday, well, happy birthday, Google! If there’s a different story behind today’s animated logo, we’re sure we’ll hear about it soon.
