What's better than playing with Legos? Playing with unlimited LEGOS and not having to worry about stepping on them.

With Google's new site, Build with Chrome, you're able to build anything you want with multiple shapes and colors of Legos and then share your creations with other people. You can go free form, or you can enter the Build Academy and rise up through the ranks.

The Build With Chrome site appears to be a collaboration with "The Lego Movie," which will be in theaters starting Feb. 7. The Build Academy features some of the characters from the film.

"Build with Chrome is the largest Legos set you’ve ever seen. It’s a Chrome Experiment, which was made to push the boundaries of what’s possible on the web," Google said in a statement to The Huffington Post. "For Google, the goal of this experience was to show the power and maturity of open web technologies supported by modern browsers."

Google has even created a Legos version of Google Maps -- so if you're more of an observer than a builder, you can explore the map and look at what people around you have created. People have placed little buildings and other creations all over the world for you to peruse.

Google's created other games in the past. Last year, the company launched Roll It, a game that connects your smartphone and computer. And, of course, Google turned search into a game when it famously turned image searches for "Atari Breakout" into actual games of Atari Breakout.
