Google has teamed up with LEGO and launched a virtual version of the iconic bricks that allows users to build structures on the Chrome browser.

Called “Build With Chrome,” the multi-colored creations are constructed on a virtual pad supported WebGL, a 3D graphics technology. The time-sucking web app is even supported on Google-approved mobile devices.

“…you can build your creations using a touchscreen on your phone or tablet with Chrome for Android support for WebGL on devices with high-end graphics capabilities,” Google explains on its blog.

Once you’ve squandered your entire work week recreating Dubai’s Burj Khalifa in impressive detail, you can publish your creation on this Google Map (screenshot below) and share it with the rest of the world.

Get ready for the most unproductive day of your life.
