Spotted: 8-Bit Toronto

SPOTTED BY: Torontoist contributor Stephen Michalowicz

WHERE: Google Maps

WHEN: March 31

WHAT: Getting a jump on April Fools’ Day: Google, which introduced an 8-bit version of the world into its regular Google Map interface today. To use it yourself go to Google Maps and click on the “Quest” button in the top right corner—right where you’re used to seeing the “Satellite” button—and explore your pixelated surroundings. Here’s a fun video explaining how they did it.
