Taking a dive: Instrument builds an awesome immersive skydiving experience for Google I/O using Google Maps API

Portland’s Instrument always tries to pull out all of the stops when it comes to Google I/O, the annual developer conference where Google often unveils new technology. This year is no different.

Check out the skydiving game they built using “multiple instances of Chrome mashed up with the Google Maps Javascript API v3, Web GL, 3D CSS, web sockets and node.js.”

For more on the skydiving experience, read Instrument’s blog post as well as coverage in The Verge and Engadget.
