If you find yourself in a creative block, mindlessly spinning around your 3D model, there is now another type of … creative block that can save you. Google has brought all the fun you once had (or are still having) toying with Legos into the digital realm with "Build With Chrome."
Similar to Sketchup, “Build With Chrome” allows you to place 3D models into Google Maps as geo-specific projects. With all the functionality of a Google+ account, the models can then be shared, discussed, and added-to by your peers and circles.
The experiment also includes a version for your touch screen, which offers a more “hands-on” Lego play. We can already foresee its impact on the future of presentation boards at architecture school.
On, and the best part? You'll never have to worry about missing pieces again.

Love lego? Well, we certainly do. Some highlights include: "Is Lego Stiffing Our Creativity?", Lego's response in the form of "Architecture Studio", and some fun projects like the lego loft and the world's longest lego train track.
