Parents Happy As Google Gives A Chance To View Animals In 3D In Their Homes

Wanted to visit the zoo, but can’t due to the movement control order (MCO)? You can experience animals in your living room using Google’s Augmented Reality (AR) instead.

Users can find the animals right on top of the Google search panel. For example, searching for a panda, tiger or even hedgehog will produce an explanation about the animal and a prompt to meet a life-sized version up close.
“Now you can use AR to place 3D digital objects right in your own space directly from Search or from websites on Chrome. Learn more about everything from NASA’s Curiosity Rover to human anatomy to animals like hedgehogs, penguins, and sharks, with a greater sense of context and scale,” said Google, on its website.

Clicking the ‘View in 3D’ button generates a 3D model users can spin around and inspect on their phones. The animal also moves around, sniffing and scratching while being watched.
