Google Chrome’s FastBall

To celebrate the latest instance of it’s Chrome browser Google Creative Lab teamed up with BBH and created ‘FastBall‘, a race across the internet.

The latest stable release of Google Chrome comes with Adobe Flash built-in, and as a Flash-based YouTube game ‘FastBall‘ highlights this feature.

The very cool thing about the game is that is makes use of several APIs from Google itself and from other services like Twitter and Your job is to complete your task as quick as possible.

According to BBH “The video player for the experience is built on top of the YouTube API with six separate video players loaded on the page – each featuring a different piece of a handmade track. All games are loaded at the beginning, but are made invisible. As the current video comes to its stopping point, we pause it and cue the window to expand to show the game.”

If you’re not in the mood for playing games, check the ‘FastBall’ game in the video below.
