Even as you observe social responsibility at home during the coronavirus pandemic, you can still learn more about the wildlife by bringing fauna into your living space—virtually, of course.
Google Search’s AR features let you view and interact with 3D objects in real-time via your smartphone. All you have to do is look up an animal from its available selection, check the Knowledge Panel, and then view it in 3D and AR.
Select animals consist of a tiger, shark, alligator, dog (bulldog, Labrador retriever, pomeranian, pug, and rottweiler), macaw, cat, penguin, panda, lion, octopus, angler fish and more.
The company is also working with partners like NASA, New Balance, Samsung, and Target in order for users to gain insightful information about the brands’ offerings in true scale.
🦁 and 🐯 and 🐻, oh my! Turn your home into a virtual zoo with #AR. Search for animals on Google using your phone and select “View in 3D” to see them in your space, like this tiger. #Google3Danimals pic.twitter.com/2rIf60MeH1— Google (@Google) April 10, 2020
