Skydiving with Google Maps

In my daily search for new and exciting implementations of the Google Maps API I normally check Twitter mentions of 'Google Maps'. One of the problems with using Twitter for this kind of search is that the results are often over-run with lame Google Maps jokes.

Probably the lamest joke, and one that never seems to disappear from my Twitter search results, is this:

"I've never skydived but I have zoomed into Google Maps really fast."

Well now you can skydive for real on Google Maps - but only if you are attending Google I/O next week. Check out the video to see it in action and to learn a little more about how this game was developed.
