New web app lets users create models with virtual Lego bricks and place them on a ‘plot of land’ in Australia or New Zealand.

Google Chrome has partnered with LEGO Australia to create a web app that lets users build models with virtual bricks, bringing the popular physical toy to the digital world. With the world's biggest LEGO set you can choose a plot of land in Australia or New Zealand, build whatever you want with nearly 1,000 bricks, publish it on the public map, and share it with friends.

‘Build' celebrates 50 years of the LEGO brick in Australia and is expected to roll out globally via Google Chrome later this year. You can watch the Sydney Harbour Bridge being virtually recreated in the video below:
