Google – 1980’s style

For anyone who grew up before the invent of Facebook, Bing, or even MySpace, the image above will be quite familiar.  Old ASCII style interface. 

But this is actually a proper Google search – it’s called the Google BBS Terminal – developed by Masswerk and it’s an amazing and retro version of the search engine. 

The home page even returns the latest news stories, accessible by pressing…yes, pressing a key – no clicks allowed!

You can check it out for yourself by visiting the Masswerk site, or else, have a look at the video below.
