What was old is new – Google Maps and PACMAN

I wrote about in the article on the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS (The New Wall poster) that it felt like the early 80’s again, it appears I was right with the latest addition to Google Maps. The guys at Google released this week a creative way to use Google Maps to incorporate a 1980 Arcade classic “PACMAN” into maps.

Now when searching for an address in Google Maps you will see the option in the lower left hand corner to use streets as a PACMAN map. Let PACMAN and the Ghosts run through the streets in Paris, Texas, or cruise in Milan, Italy or New York City. I can go on but I am sure you would prefer for me to stop.
