Bored at work? Google may have an answer for you

We all know the feeling. You made it through Monday, and now Tuesday is half over... but it's how much longer until the weekend? Well the fine folks over at Google may just have created a quirky product to help get you through until Friday at 5 p.m.

To celebrate the Atari Breakout's 37th birthday, Google turned Google Image search into a fully functional Breakout game. All you have to do is go to, click on "Images" and search for "Atari Breakout." The page will then turn into a playable version of the Atari classic. Even better, once you beat the first level, the page refreshes with all new images so you can play all day (just don't let your boss know). 

Breakout broke into the video game world in April 1976 as an arcade game. It has had several different iterations throughout the years, even inspiring a science-fiction short, Against the Wall.
