Today's Google Doodle is pretty amazing

Those doodlers have really excelled with this one.


PEOPLE ABOUT TO kiss, a monster’s face, a butterfly, a frog, a magician and a space invader are just some of the things that people have seen in today’s Google Doodle.

The search engine has transformed its home page into the Rorschach test, the well-known ink blob test developed by the Swiss Freudian psychiatrist and psychoanalyst.

The interactive doodle was developed to celebrate Hermann Rorschach’s birth 129 years ago and users have been asked to share what they see on Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus using the hashtag #RorschachDoodle.

Rorschach died at the age of 37 from peritonitis brought on by a ruptured appendix but before his untimely death he had completed Psychodiagnostik – his book describing how inkblot testing could be used in pscyhoanalysis.
