You're probably aware that your Google Search box is more than capable of handling math operations and conversions. Just try entering "10+10", or "10 km in miles", or even "50 USD in EUR"), but what you probably din't know is that Google is now able to plot 3D graphics.
When you enter a 2 variable function, like :
sqrt(x*x+y*y)+3*cos(sqrt(x*x+y*y))+5 from -20 to 20
You'll get an interactive, zoomable 3D graphic that puts your browser WebGL capabilities to good use.
... I wouldn't be surprised if they added animation features in its next evolution, and before you know it, we might end up having a full-fledged 3D modelling and animation package inside Google Search. ;)
