Google confirms trio of mysterious doodles are tribute to SF author H.G. Wells

Google confirmed on its blog yesterday that a trio of mysterious doodles posted on its homepage over the past couple of weeks is a tribute to British science fiction author H.G. Wells, who would have been 143 years old on September 21st: “Inspiration for innovation in technology and design can come from lots of places; we wanted to celebrate H.G. Wells as an author who encouraged fantastical thinking about what is possible, on this planet and beyond. And maybe have some fun while we were doing it.”
