Lego had gone digital!
Build, a collaborative project between Lego Australia and Google Chrome, fuses WebGL, the very latest in in-browser graphics, and Google Maps to allow users the chance to build, share and even renovate their very own digital Lego structures on a global platform.
After months of rumours and leaks, Google Drive has finally been officially announced for public release. The cloud storage service offers 5GB of free space (3 more that Dropbox’s offering) as well as full integration with the rest of Google’s Services, sharing and collaboration functionality, and a ‘time machine’ like feature - tracking every change you make and allowing you to go back and revisit.

Google begins testing its Augmented Reality Glasses
The prototype version Google showed off on Wednesday looked like a very polished and well-designed pair of wrap-around glasses with a clear display that sits above the eye. The glasses can stream information to the lenses and allow the wearer to send and receive messages through voice commands. There is also a built-in camera to record video and take pictures.
“We think technology should work for you—to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.
A group of us from Google[x] started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do.”
