In a fantastic cross section of fun, Lego and Google Australia have teamed up to create Build With Chrome
. Using Google Maps and Lego blocks, users of the Chrome web browser can scope out a plot of land on a map of the world to create their own shared Lego creations.
Like popular block building MMO game Minecraft, the map is multi-user and interactive so users can see what creations other people have made. Though currently limited to a map of Australia and New Zealand, it's still a really fun concept. Google never seems to shy away from interesting collaborations, and this one certainly brings me back to my childhood. Go try it out!
