Earlier today we launched Chrome Super Sync Sports. It’s an interactive web game that enables up to four friends to compete in running, swimming and cycling events on a shared computer screen, using their smartphones or tablets as game controllers.
Chrome Super Sync Sports was built with the latest browser technologies:
- Touch APIs to recognise gestures made on your smartphone and tablet.
- WebSockets are used to deliver immediate real-time playback across all the players in your group and to update the main game screen as you play.
- Finally, CSS3, SVG and Canvas provide rich visuals and an immersive experience.
In the meantime, enjoy competing with your friends at chrome.com/supersyncsports and be sure to open Chrome’s developer tools to see what happens under the track!
