Google Chrome Turns Any Website Into a 3-D Marble Maze Game

Winning diversion from Google Japan

Google's latest innovation in time-wasting fun—this time out of Japan—is the Chrome World Wide Maze, a browser experiment that turns any Web page of your choosing into a 3-D marble maze. You need a smartphone for this to work properly (and, of course, Chrome for Mobile), since it becomes your controller once you've synced it up with your computer. The mobile-phone-as-game-controller idea has promise, and isn't much different from the Wii U's current setup. But they'll have to do more than this to make up for axing Google Reader. Jerks.
