Google Maps 5.0 on a Nexus S video: 3D buildings in motion

The 3D vector buildings and silky smooth loading times of Google Maps 5.0 have been shown off in a video from Google.

Shown running on a Google Nexus S, version 5.0 of is shaping up very nicely indeed. Sadly there’s no demo of how the offline mode will work, but it’s nice to see things like Places, Navigation and adding layers all working seamlessley.

Now if only we could get a Wire Goggles-style layer over the top of these 3D buildings. Then our Ghost in the Shell fantasies would be complete.
