Think of it as the world’s biggest LEGO set.
Build LEGO Online With Chrome
The Google team worked with LEGO Australia to create an online tool that will help users build their own stuff using virtual LEGO blocks. Google Australia explains more about the deal…
We love building with LEGOR bricks. We loved it as kids, and we still love it now. Visit any Google office, you’re going to see LEGO bricks all over the place.
So it’s with childish delight that today we can announce Build. Over the last few months we’ve been working with LEGO Australia, thinking about what would happen if we brought bricks to the browser. Build is the result: our latest Chrome Experiment which lets you explore and build a new world of LEGO creations together online. With 8 trillion bricks, think of Build as the largest LEGO set you’ve ever seen.
Build may look simple, but this collaborative 3D building experience would not have been possible a couple of years ago. It shows how far browser technology has come and how the web is an amazing platform for creativity. We made the bricks with WebGL, which enables powerful 3D graphics right in the browser and demonstrates the upper limit of current WebGL graphics performance. We then mixed in Google Maps (another Aussie invention) so you can put your creation in a LEGO world alongside everyone else’s.
You can save and share your creations using your Google+ profile. Want to see stuff others created? take a look at medieval castles to sea snakes, giant mouse cursors to smiling monsters and even a Kiwi!
