Google Maps April Fools

Because who wouldn’t want to use an 8 bit version of Google maps?  In a stellar April Fools prank, Google created a video launching Google maps for Nintendo.  Check out the video below – our favorite part is at 1:26.  While this is a joke, they’ve actually created a trial version you can play here.  Now, if only we could figure out how to make all bugs fixable just by blowing on them.

And a few other awesome April Fools pranks you might have missed:

Kodak invents a 3D kitten printer

West Jet introduces adult only flights with children in toboggans

ThinkGeek lets you buy Hungry Hungry Hippos for iPad

And, finally, in a fun twist of events, AdBlock introduces the Lolcats themed Catblock.  The company’s CEO, however, says they’ve gotten enough requests for this one that they’re actually producing this product.
