    “Turn favorite website into a 3d maze.” Poor grammar Google.

      It comes from Google Japan. Might be lost in translation.

      • ranwanimator

        Fair enough, though that doesn’t say much for Google Translate now does it.

          Japanese sentences often omit the pronouns (subject, object etc.) I am learning Japanese currently and even a human would have problems understanding it because a lot of things could be implied. I don’t expect machine translation can handle it in my lifetime.

    Google do seem to have far to much time on their hands, lol.

      Lol You Think!?

      When you have 100 Moonshot ideas over at the X lab and one consist of a Space Elevator, that’s when you know they have way too much time on their hands

      I mean why not just build a space ship who the hell wants to take an elevator to space? lol

      I’m laughing as I’m typing this because it sounds so ridiculous lol

      • ranwanimator

        Space elevators are currently impractical because we don’t have the necessary materials with which to build the cable, but in theory they would be a huge boon to transporting people and materials into space. Each trip would theoretically cost a fraction of sending up an equivalent rocket.

          That cable idea scares me…but I’m not thoroughly educated on the subject either :-)

          • tkarel

            No need for cable. Wrap a mag lev train around an iron post and turn the power knob to 11 and watch the fun.
            On a more serious note, I don’t know which would be more scary when it broke, a flexible cable or a solid iron post.

      • martina

        Hehehe I loved it

  • McLovin

    OMFG! (lost in translation) Few are gonna be able to figure this out!

  • Wilson Lara

    It works alright… A little hard to control the tilt but it’s great time waster. Really fun.

  • donger

    Haha this is awesome.

  • da9el

    that’s great fun! haha, at the first try it disconnected a few meters before the goal was reached:)

  • Ondrej Velebný

    The concept of the game is stolen. It is a shame for Google.

  • KRS_Won

    It will be even better once this idea can work between my tablet and my phone.
