Google opens Pandora’s Box with virtual Lego

Virtual Lego looks like a lot of fun!

lego-houseIf this blog post seems a little short today, it’s because I’m busy preparing my lawsuit against Google and Lego. It seems the two companies have poached an idea I shared nearly a year ago, wherein I proposed a 3D  tool that could allow people to construct their own virtual Lego creations and then share them online.

Lo and behold, Google has launched Build With Chrome, a tool for its web browser that does exactly that. Excuse me, I think that’s my lawyer calling…

I’m only kidding, of course. As a Lego aficionado, I’m actually overjoyed that Google has done this – and I’m amazed at how well it works. In a blog post, product marketing manager Adrian Soghoian explains that the tool uses WebGL, a 3D graphics technology, to create a smooth-flowing interface. I’ll be damned if it doesn’t look a lot like professional CAD software.
