Virtual Toy Brick Games

The LEGO Build With Chrome Project Lets You Create Structures Online

— June 27, 2012 — Tech
Putting together a large-scale toy brick structure at home without first being able to visualize how the pieces will fit together can be a bit tedious but the LEGO Build With Chrome project lets you plan out and construct your creation without having to take apart your progress if you make a mistake.

Developed to showcase the speed and virtual interactive qualities of Google Chome and celebrate LEGO's 50th anniversary in Australia, the game lets users virtually construct brick structures on real plots of land. Once you select the area in either Australia or New Zealand that you wish to build on, you can then start putting your creation together out of digital LEGO bricks -- so long as it is not offensive or a direct copy of another person's design.

After you are finish building, you can save your progress and plot it on the map for others around the country to see.
