Is LEGO too expensive for you?

Does LEGO bricks taking a lot of space of KIDS closet?

Still there’s something pretty amazing about being able to piece together your ideas with just a collection of colorful bricks.

Chrome team of Google is collaborating with LEGO Group to build a virtual LEGO world through Build with Chrome

 

It was originally built by a team in Australia as an experiment, and now Google is opening it up to everybody. So now you can publish your wacky creations to any plot of land in the world.

Google has added a few new features to make it easier to build and explore this digital world of LEGO creations. To start, you can now sign in with a Google+ account to help find stuff that people in your circles have created. A new categorization system for completed Builds will help you sort and filter for specific types of structures.

To hone your engineering skills and prepare for the upcoming “THE LEGOR MOVIETM,” you can explore the Build Academy, a series of short tutorials and challenges featuring characters and structures from the film.

If it feels more natural to use your hands—rather than a mouse—you can build your creations using a touchscreen on your phone or tablet with Chrome for Android support for WebGL on devices with high-end graphics capabilities.

As big fans of LEGO, TPL excited to see what you come up with to fill this new world. Share your creations onGoogle+ and TPL and we’ll reshare the most inventive ones.
