We know you like to log on to Discovery News to check out our techy coverage of all-terrain robots, holograms and virtual talking heads, but once you’re done reading, how about turning our website into a playable 3-D marble maze you control with your smartphone?
Google’s latest Chrome Experiment game let’s you do just that. In fact, you can do so with any website. Just go to World Wide Maze and type in your desired URL. Your site will then be converted into a 3-D marble maze that you control with your smartphone’s accelerometer.
First, you’ll need to verify your smartphone is running at least Android 4.0 or iOS 5. If so, you’ll be able to sync up your PC copy of Chrome with your mobile device and play on your favorite websites.
You control a shiny marble as it rolls around “flat” horizontal page layouts to collect blue target gems. You have 300 seconds and three lives to collect ‘em all. If you fail to do so, sorry, game over. At least you can go back to reading the news.
