Default Google60 simulates 'Mad Men' era punch card web searches, BYOB

If you've ever pondered what Google "web" searching would have been like in the 60s, the Google60 art project has got a pretty natty-looking response. Created by designer Norbert Landsteiner of Google BBS fame, it lets you enter your search term via punch cards of the era, then heads off to the tape archives for text, news or image results -- which it furiously outputs on a simulated typewriter-style printer. The project uses actual sounds from an IBM 129 keypunch and Teletype Model ASR 33, while paying homage to the classic IBM system 360 mainframe in the image above. So, hit the source, pour up a scotch and have a gas searching, man.
