Google and Lego Team Up Downunder- Google Build

June 27, 2012

Lego lets face it! How hasn’t heard of it or played with it, either if you where young or in your 80’s building a Lego harry potter castle.Or just be like internet sensation iJustine building her Lego self. Well now in Australia go have

teamed together with Lego to bring Google Build a Google Chrome experiment.

The new experiment announced on the Google Australia blog on the 26Th of June about the new “Build With Chrome” experiment. This is mainly the celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Lego bricks in Australia and New Zealand. Build With Chrome enables people to (sadly this is only avaliable too users in Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand) build things on the Australian and New Zealand Lego map.

Google also posted that “we hope to see

you fill the Build world up with everything from medieval castles to sea snakes, giant mouse cursors to smiling monsters and even a Kiwi!”.

One of the most awesome features i like about the Build project is that you can build things from a rock to a large sky scraper. In fact i just built my house in South Western Sydney, i won’t be sharing it as

not all of us are artistic with Lego. I’d rather share screenshot of what a bird eye view of Australia looks like made out of Lego so far.

Also Google has given us a little image of what you can build with Lego with Chrome by building a man on a stage which is view-able by playing the video attached below. So will you be using Build With Chrome? Also you can use Build With Chrome by going to http://buildwithchrome.com/.

    This is really cool & awesome web application allowing to create virtual property with virtual Lego bricks without being limited by the number of bricks in a box. But one thing i can’t understand is that why Google has made such amazing application first come first serve? Is there any limitation of available storage? Anyway, thanks for the interesting sharing.

    What I personally like the most about this program is that the mutual 3D building experience which would not have been possible a couple of years ago…
