Google AR brings 3D animals into users’ homes


Ever wondered if you could fit a hedgehog in your living room, or maybe even a giant panda? Now you can try, using Google AR. — Google

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.
