Google Search Interface Now Sports Scientific Calcultor

Although you’ve long been able to punch simple calculations into Google–like 12*100–now you can access a full scientific calculator right from the search interface.

The new calculator appears automatically if you input any sort of calculation as a Google search query or if you search for “calculator”. On HTML5 enabled web browsers it appears as a full scientific calculator (seen in the screenshot above) but on mobile devices it only shows the full spread of buttons when viewed in landscape mode.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
