Cube Slam demonstrates some of the coolest new web technologies, all in one application:
- Google Cloud Platform - The game is hosted by a scalable, high performance back end written in Go and served by Google App Engine. A STUN/TURN server running on Google Compute Engine is used to exchange data across and between firewalls.
Cube Slam is an open source project, available via this public repository. You can read more about the technology behind Cube Slam.

We hope this Chrome experiment inspires you to build your own applications harnessing the Google Cloud Platform and the latest web technologies built right into Chrome!
