For browsers visit chrome.com/supersyncsports and visit g.co/super on your device. After choosing whether you want to play solo or with friends, you simply type in the sync code into your device to start the games. From there controls are on your device, you get to choose from over 50 funky avatars, from an invisible man to a piece of modern art. Simply follow the instructions on your device and you’re all set to race.

Built entirely from the latest web technologies such as HTML5, Canvas, and CSS3, this new experiment just goes to show how far our browsers have come and what they can achieve.
