Lego In Your Browser

I don’t know about you but this news report is disturbing.  From the Toronto Star, “Lego shortage leaves toy stores between a block and a hard place“.

Oh, the humanity!

Fortunately, your browser comes to the rescue.  Check out “Build with Chrome” and be like a kid in a candy Lego store.

You have a whole collection of Lego blocks to choose from – along with colours – 

Just pick them up and drag them to your workspace and click to place.  I’ll admit to a bit of a spacial challenge when I first started because I seemed to be one row away from the perfect placement!  However, you can easily remove a brick and then place it back properly.

And, what would a Google product be without integration across services?

If you’re so inclined, you can log in with your Google account and post your masterpiece to a Google map for the world to enjoy your efforts.

As I write this post, I don’t see any published efforts from Essex County but there are some from our neighbours to the north.

It makes sense – head off to Silicon Valley if you want to see a great deal of early effort with this project.  There is a whole World of Build to allow you to snap in and extend the building.  As you might expect, there are some experiments that may be abandoned but getting the right people together could build something momentous.

There’s a lot of creative people with Lego.  Will you or your students be one more of them?
