Build with Chrome

Build with Chrome | technologies | Scoop.it
Now you can build with LEGO® bricks using Google Maps as your baseplate. Imagine. Explore. Build online in Chrome.
John Dalziel's insight:

Build with Chrome, is a collaboration between Chrome and the LEGO Group which has brought colourful bricks to the web using WebGL, a 3D graphics technology. It was originally built by a team in Australia as an experiment, and now Google has opening it up to everybody. So now users can publish your wacky creations to any plot of land in the world.
There are a few new features to make it easier to build and explore this digital world of LEGO creations.
- Users 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 users sort and filter for specific types of structures.
- To hone skills users can explore the Build Academy, a series of short tutorials.

If you want learners to get a feel for what Shakespeare’s theatre looked like, then look no further than this virtual tour.

All that's required is the free Quicktime plugin for the browser and users can take a 360 tour of...

- the stage,

- the yard,

- the middle gallery, and

- the upper gallery

… all without leaving the learning environment..
