- A hacker has ported all of Google Maps to a modded Nintendo Leisure System.
- The ultimate product is an 8-bit map of the world.
- The hacker used a number of different NES/map mods as a launching level.
Bear in mind how Google used to have April Fools’ jokes yearly? A kind of jokes was the announcement of an 8-bit version of Google Maps that you could possibly use on a Nintendo Leisure System (again in 2012). Enjoyable joke, proper?
Clearly, this NES isn’t your standard-issue fare. It’s linked to the web (which barely existed when the NES was at its peak) and has a number of different mods. Nevertheless it does render Google Maps in 8-bit designs, making our world appear like one thing from Dragon Warrior or the very first Remaining Fantasy.
Within the video, mirrored above, you’ll be able to see how the hacker put all of it collectively. They’d loads of inspiration together with a modder who carried out a similar feat using Bing and one other who introduced the unique Doom to an NES. In the long run, they’re traversing our world utilizing an NES controller, which is fairly superior.
