If you were planning to have a productive start to your work day: forget it. Instead, you’re going to spend hours playing with Lego online, because Google has teamed up with the toy maker to release a simulator which allows you build its bricks in Chrome.
The application, called Build, is actually the brainchild of Google Australia and Lego. It splits up a Google map of Australia and New Zealand, dividing it up into tiny lego plots, 32 x 32 studs in size. When you visit the site, you can choose a patch and then build upon it with 12 different types of 3D lego bricks (120 if you include the 10 different color options).
The plan is to roll out the app to cover other countries soon, but in the meantime there’s a lot of land in Australia, and anybody can snag a plot to build on. What are you waiting for? You’ve got important procrastination to get on with. [Build with Chrome via The Next Web]
