Behold the Google I/O Easter Egg Machine

io easter

Google published the rest of their official Google I/O 2013 page today, which we took a minute to poke around on after receiving our press invite this afternoon. I have to admit though, that we weren’t half as clever as other attentive minds of the internet who realized that the front page was interactive and filled with more Easter Eggs than you can probably count.  

As you tap on either the I or the O, you’ll see code line up at the bottom of the page. If you click in a series of correct Is and Os, you’ll see a button turn green before shuffling you off to a new page filled with secret, interactive joy (be sure to click on the surprises). If you are wrong, the button will turn red and allow you start over.

The comments over The Next Web are filled with codes, two of which we have used in the images of this post. As to not ruin the rest of the surprises, we’ll leave you to tapping away your own codes to reveal other goodies. Be sure to share them in the comments.

      After entering the music code and I saw the 4 notes, my mind instantly swapped them out for C-buttons. I then started playing all of the Ocarina of time songs I could remember.

    So…do you actually have to be a developer to go? Even if you’re a student? This is possibly a noob question.

    • Robert Delaney

      No it is open to anyone but not to sound high and mighty but it does take away a ticket from someone who is. I am a developer and last year was stressful trying to make sure I got to go. I have been to 2 others but this years is going to be extremely difficult to attend. It’s more than just the key note, its the seminars that help you learn what is new in the SDK, in this case most likely 5.0.

      • droidrazredge

        :/ what’s the best way as a graduate student trying to learn more development and experiencing this type of event getting a ticket ? I been reading that the last two years have been excruciating and irritating as people scalp tickets and that’s how the majority get sold out. I heard even last year that people who logged on @ 7:00:00AM still got the sold out message.

        • Robert Delaney

          You don’t sleep Lol. Last year when everyone knew JB was coming out I didn’t sleep and about 90 mins before I was literally power hitting refresh. As a student you still have to do it the same way as everyone else but when you get there in May you need to have a student ID, copy of your semester bill, and transcripts. They are serious about student proof since you get the tickets extremely cheap. I guest lecture at a local university and trying to see if the university will sponsor me as faculty for I/O this year so I can get this $300 ticket too. Last year with all expenses it was about $2000.

    • jathak

      You don’t have to be a developer, but please don’t buy a ticket if you’re not as it takes away a ticket from someone who is.

      If you just want to watch the keynote, it will be streamed live on YouTube. If you just want to get the stuff, just buy them as, after the I/O ticket, airfare and a hotel, it will be cheaper anyway.
