Goggle60 gives the search engine a Mad-Men makeover and lets users enter their search terms on a virtual typewriter.

Website Google60, which is described as “an art project to explore distances and heroism in user interfaces,” evokes the 1960s and Mad Men with its punch card-style interface. Type in a search term on the virtual typewriter and you’ll see the machine type out, character by character, the home search page. Then, you can choose what kind of search you want: text based, image based, or latest news. The search results are all key-based, meaning any images you look for are made up of dashes, pluses, and asterisks.
