The month of May has brought us as Site of the Month winner a joint project created by Google Creative Labs in collaboration with Rafaël Rozendaal, Weir + Wong and Rami Niemi; an endearing and fun interactive game called Chrome Super Sync Sports!

Super Sync Sports is a Chrome Experiment that allows you to sync your mobile phone to your computer and use it as a game controller. Run, Cycle or Swim your way to sporting stardom using the touchscreen on your mobile device. Built using HTML5 technologies, CSS3, Javascript and the WebSockets API, Chrome Super Sync Sports allows up to 4 friends to compete in running, swimming and cycling games on a shared computer screen, using their smartphones or tablets as game controllers.

Pick a sport, sync your mobile device to your computer, choose from 50 athletes and if you're sitting with friends, invite up to three of them to join your race using their mobile device and your computer screen.

To get started, you’ll need a computer and a smartphone or tablet that run a modern browser, like Chrome. Visit chrome.com/supersyncsports on your computer, pick a game and decide if you’re playing solo or with friends. Next, visit g.co/super in Chrome on your smartphone or tablet and type in the unique code shown on your computer screen. You’ve now “super sync”ed your mobile device with your computer, and you’re ready to race!

  • Use the arrow pad on your smartphone or tablet to select one of 50 athletes and prepare yourself for the competition. The motions you make on your mobile touchscreen will move your athlete on your computer screen. To move your athlete forward and win the race, you need to make the correct gestures as quickly as possible. The better you are, the higher your chances of making it to the global leaderboard.

  • Run! Run! Run!

  • Cycle! Cycle! Cycle!

  • Swim! Swim! Swim!
