Build Lego onto a Google Map

Google claims that it works only in Chrome, but I tried it out in Safari and Firefox on Mac with no problems.

Build is associated with the LEGO Festival of Play, celebrating 50 years of LEGO in Australia.

Other stuff that's been going on: The Martin Place LEGO forest, The Brickworks exhibition, and a few other things. This year's Brickvention was apparently pretty good.

I tried it out on Firefox on Linux and it told me to download Chrome.

It's kind of hidden, but you have to read the text on the page it tells you to download chrome on and there's a little thing that says something along the lines of "If you want to try your own browser click here". Pretty scummy if you ask me.

Meh. Nothing wrong with browser specific stuff for your demo-ey fluff.

Do it outside of that and you're a valid target for rage.
