Update: The big list of Easter eggs from Google



We have updated this message to include the new Easter eggs that Google placed as part of its 20th anniversary celebration .

Google is well known for its lighter side including fanciful logos April Fools' jokes and more. Here is a great list of Easter eggs that Google engineers have hidden for enterprising researchers who take the time to hunt them down.

Easter eggs? "A virtual Easter egg is a message, joke or intentional joke hidden in a work such as a computer program, a web page, a video game, a movie, a book or crosswords", according to Wikipedia .

Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between a classic "Easter egg", something that's hidden in the works you have to look for to reveal it, and special features that Google activates to celebrate a particular occasion or Milestone. Many people describe them as Easter eggs, although they are usually transient and impossible to find once Google has disabled them.

Some of these "transient" Easter eggs were lit to coincide with the holidays, such as looking for a phrase with "Christmas" or "Christmas" that triggered a series of colored lights under the bar of research. Likewise, around the same time, the search for "hanukkah" included a row of star-shaped lights of David and that of "kwanzaa," a row of Kinara candles.

Even though they are fun, I do not consider them as "real" Easter eggs. The purpose of this post is to focus on "permanent" eggs that you can search and find at any time. Most of Google's Easter eggs are smart and fun. Some require specialized knowledge, as you will see in many examples below.

Search on Google Easter Eggs

In a logical step, Google asks, "Do you mean: recursion? "

Search the answer to life, the universe and all

 Google Easter egg: the answer to life, the universe and everything "width =" 577 "height =" 400 "/><p> In his classic book <a href= The guide to the hitchhiker of the galaxy Douglas Adams wrote "the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything is 42."

Binary representations, base 13, Tibetan monks are utterly nonsense. in the garden and thought 42 would do the business. I typed it. End of the story. "Nonsense or not, the Google calculator returns the number 42 in response to this query.

Google Easter Eggs Calculator

The Google calculator could technically be considered an extension of the search engine. To use it, just enter equations or expressions directly into the search box and your result appears at the top of the search results. Here are some of the most fun easter eggs on calculator:

Search for " Once in a Blue Moon "

 google's Easter egg: once in a blue moon "width =" 600 "height =" 254 "/><p> Google also offers useful results for snapshots of common numbers. blue moon "and you will get the answer" 1.16699016 × 10-8 hertz ". Why? Convert the result to seconds (one hertz equals one cycle per second) in years, and you will get about 2.7 years – the approximate time that elapses between each time, the "blue moon" has nothing to see with the color of the moon. Rather, it refers to a month where there are two full moons which, because of the variation of the lunar cycle and our calendar, corresponds to about one blue moon (a second full moon a month) every three years.</p><p> You can also have fun with the Google calculator with numerical phrases such as "<a href= a dozen bakers ", " the most lonely number " and " the number of horns on a unicorn . "

If you're a true math lover, you can create complex equations that Google will calculate, and then graphically represent a recognizable form, such as the Easter egg above. Here is one, represented graphically from the following equation:

sqrt (cos (x)) * cos (300x) + sqrt (abs (x)) – 0.7) * (4-x * x) ^ 0.01, sqrt (6-x ^ 2), -sqrt (6 -x ^ 2) from -4.5 to 4.5
