Google Doodles, first half of 2013

I originally put together my collection of favorite Google doodles towards the middle of last December and I didn't really feel like appending the last few doodles at the end of the 2012 blog listing. So, I've made them part of the first half of the 2013 entry. There are  quite a few that I consider interesting enough to add to the collection. My deciding factors are: Science and technology, Japan, Interactivity and I think it's funny.
