Google released a new Chrome experiment in partnership with LEGO: Build with Chrome. You can use your mouse or touchscreen to build anything your mind can think of. You can do this all through your web browser. Once you are done with your digital carpentry share them on Google+ You can also see what others have already built.
We think the creative freedom of LEGO bricks shouldn’t be limited to plastic bins. 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.
The experiment was originally built by a team in Australia two years ago but is just now being opened to everybody. I wonder what players of MineCraft have to say about this plugin because it is basically the same game. The only think it is musing is the private servers and monster and time changes. Ok, maybe it’s not the same at all.
