Navigate your marble around a 3D cube with real-life maps

Google has a great new game you can play, utilizing its mapping technology that shows you some of the latest features of Google Maps.

If you want to play the game, head to Google's PlayMapsCube site. Warning - it's addictive.

Just one request, Google: Let's integrate this with all of your maps - I'd love to take a marble spin around my own hometown.
