Google has certainly done its bit when it comes to Chrome experiments in the past, and one of their most recent attempts would come in the form of Journey through Middle-earth. In order to know more about this, just check out the video above. Of course, there is also the option of pointing your browser to goo.gl/TheHobbit on a compatible device and you’re good to go.

The “Journey through Middle-earth” Chrome Experiment has been inspired by the upcoming motion picture “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” where it will ensure that locations as well as characters from the movie trilogy will be brought to life thanks to a clever mix of modern web technologies. Specially developed by North Kingdom alongside Warner Bros. Pictures, New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, you will kickstart your adventure from a beautiful, interactive map of Middle-earth. You will be able to zoom in so that you can explore all the nooks and crannies of Trollshaw Forest, Rivendell and Dol Guldur, and fret not – there will be additional locations that will be thrown into the mix in the weeks to come. Do you like what you have seen so far, and what other kinds of movie franchises do you think should deserve the Chrome Experiment treatment? [Press Release]
