Google has introduced two new Chrome Experiments. Both make use of Chrome across multiple devices and allow multiplayer web experiences across computers, tablets, and smartphones. Both are small little games that are designed to show the possibilities of Chrome and the Internet. First up, Roll It:

Roll It is a virtual version of the classic ski-ball game. It uses the desktop Chrome to render the graphics. Balls are rolled by flicking your smartphone running Chrome. Racer, on the other hand, is a virtual slot-car game. Users build race tracks that align across five mobile screens. Touching your screen sends your car across all the devices.

You can try out Roll It here and Racer here.
