Google Chrome: The World Wide Maze

Google’s addiction to creative experiments continues to skyrocket, and with it comes this, ‘The World Wide Maze’ which essentially, turns your favourite websites into mobile controlled pinball meets marble maze games.

Chrome World Wide Maze is the latest experiment from the Google Japan crew that syncs the mobile Chrome browser to a tab on the desktop, turning your smartphone into a controller that navigates a digital pinball on the desktop screen around a 3D rendering of any site on the Web.

Sounds like an odd concept at first, but once your device and desktop are synced up via HTML5 WebSockets and you’ve picked your site, the gameplay is exceedingly smooth.

The game takes advantage of Javascript, WebGL-powered 3D graphics, HTML5 accelerometer support, and other modern Web wonders.
