It looks so cool. Why they don't apply that worldwide?!

Wow, those are really nice. May be a little more intense than the standard Google page but they pull it off pretty slick. Side question: how much extra bandwidth do ya'll think Google would be using a year if they switched to using this interface on their standard page?

I think people from Asia are more visual.

It's not Google X because it lacks that effect from Mac's dock.

Way cool!!!

BTW, anyone knows why Google decided to use the letter ' X ' on this project?

David, because the MacOS X dock was the inspiration for the project :)

The Google.vc is like an exact copy. Is that in any way affiliated to someone that works at Google? Is Google copying a fan design?

I saw a small note at the bottom of the page (google.vc/google.html) saying that the original source is from google.co.kr/ig?sp=korea&h ...

How come on the unofficial ones the little circles are red before you hover and then go to the colour they should be
