Atari Breakout on Google Images

Want a break from your heavy duty research project?  Just type in "Atari Breakout" in Google Image search.  You'll have to control the paddle with your mouse (unless you have a paddle controller for your computer).  Now I'm suddenly wondering if this would work on a touch screen.

The really fun thing is that the colored bars you're breaking out of are actually images from Google Image.  You start out with Atari Breakout images, then they appear to change.  Maybe it's random, maybe you're seeing the real time search results of other Google Image users, but there's something very satisfying about breaking through images of cows for some reason.
