Chrome + LEGO: You can build whatever you like!

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 7 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Think back: you’ve just dumped a bin of LEGO bricks onto the floor with a satisfying crash, and you have the whole day ahead of you to build whatever you want. There’s something pretty amazing about being able to piece together your ideas with just a collection of colorful bricks.

Well, the creative freedom of LEGO bricks shouldn’t be limited to plastic bins—which is the idea behind Build with Chrome, a collaboration between Chrome and the LEGO Group that brought these colorful bricks to the web using WebGL, a 3D graphics technology. It was originally built by a team in Australia as an experiment, and now their opening it up to everybody. So now you can publish your wacky creations to any plot of land in the world.

As you might expect, creations can be viewed across Google+ circles with categories for sorting, and tutorials will help hone those plastic contractor skills. If you really wanna get hands-on, use your phone or tablet’s touchscreen for a more tactile feel. Itching to get started? You can begin construction right here.
