Marking the 50th anniversary of the Lego brick in Australia, Google Chrome and Lego have teamed up to create Build - a program that lets you build 3D Lego creations and place them on a map.

To join, choose a plot of land on Google's map and start building. Alternatively, you can explore buildings created by other users - either on the map itself, or by browsing through recent or most viewed creations.

The app, created by Google Australia in Sydney, is only available to those in Australia and New Zealand currently, Right now, but the Build program might be launched globally at a later date.

Of course, if you want to join in, you must follow some rules. Your work has to be original, it cannot offend or shock others, promote religious or political ideologies or advertise a brand.
