If you're a LEGO fanatic like we are, you're going to love what the software engineers at Google and LEGO have developed: a 3D modeling tool that uses LEGO's iconic pieces as the building blocks.
The developers call it "the largest LEGO set the world has ever seen."
The free application, called Build, allows Chrome browser users to create virtual 3D structures using any shape and color in the LEGO catalog. Users can build LEGO structures on any plot in the world, using a PC or mobile device.
LEGO models can be saved and shared with other users. They can also view creations dreamt up by other builders.
The site includes the Build Academy, which puts users through a series of building challenges in different locations, with the goal of attaining LEGO Master Builder status. Along the way, players can unlock new LEGO bricks and colors.
OK, enough talk. Give it a try! http://www.buildwithchrome.com.
