Google's tribute to Louis Braille

Wednesday, January 04, 2006

Today on Louis Braille's birthday Google has made its logo in the Braille language. The image below shows the Google logo on January 4, 2006.

This image was linked to the search term: louis braille birthdate. These special images on some special occasions really make Google look apart from any other search engine or website on the internet. Hats-off to Google for conceptualizing these kind of logos.

Something about Louis Braille:
Louis Braille (January 4, 1809 - January 6, 1852) was the inventor of Braillee, a world wide system used by blind and visually impaired people for reading and writing. Braille is read by passing ones fingers over characters which are made up of an arrangement of one to six embossed points. It has been adapted to almost every known language.
