Google adds 34-button scientific calculator with voice support to Google Search

Google added a large scientific calculator to their flagship Google Search.

Seen here on TechCrunch:

I tried it out a little, not including the voice stuff. It worked some. Great work, guys!

My comment to Google:

How about just integrating Python into the Google Search box? You could still keep the GUI calculator as a separate option. Then even more complex calculations could be done easily.

Only partly kidding ...

They could use or write something like PythonAnywhere to achieve this.

Or even use the Unix bc command:

Hilary Mason already created a bc Twitter bot which does just that.

Dear Google, don't go all GUI on me ...

Inspired by nature.
