The Story

To demonstrate the magic of the web on both PC and mobile, we created a game where you can turn any website into a 3D maze and interact with it using your smartphone.

World Wide Maze is created with the technologies of WebGL, WebSocket, and Chrome's Tab Sync function. WebGL and WebSocket are technologies open to the public. Tab Sync is also a generally known technology, but we used it in a new way to connect PC and mobile together. We also used the beta version of Google Compute Engine.

The Results

In just a few days since launch, World Wide Maze got huge buzz on social media. Millions of people experienced the web in a whole new way, thanks to the power of Chrome.
