Is COVID-19 pandemic crisis making your life boring amid lockdown? Have you exhausted all topics that you can chit-chat with your friends? Now, at this point of the lockdown its time to make things more interesting, lets bring home some interesting guests that you normally don’t find, ever, in your home. Wondering what it is? How about bring a life-size wild tiger, lion or cute panda in your living room? Very interesting isn’t it? Thanks to Google’s Augmented-Reality objects in Google search, you can choose from a wide range of new residents to be seen as 3D animals within the confines of your home.
This will also be fun pass time for kids stuck at home during this crisis and also an exciting way to help them learn about their favourite animals seen life-size. The search engine giant had introduced this AR feature in Search, last year. Earlier the list of animals and objects you could view in 3D was very limited then, but now Google has made it more fun by adding a huge number of animals and things to the list. Some of the animals include tigers, pandas, horses, lions, sharks, snakes, alligators, brown bears, angler fish, dogs, cats, cheetahs and many other animals. Google is updating the list with more animals. Don’t mistake there are not just animals, some of the planets like Earth and Mars can also be seen in 3D. Exciting isn’t it?
How to view 3D animals on Google?
It is very simple, here are the steps:
1. In order to use this feature, first you need to type the name of an animal in for example: ‘Lion’.
2. Just below the image search results and the Wikipedia description of “Lion”, look for a little box that says, “Meet a life-sized lion up close”.
3. Click the ‘view in 3D’ button, then click ‘view in your space’ to see the lion in your own space, in your home living room or wherever you are.
4. To see the “Lion” in your space, first you’ll need to give Google access to your mobile camera.
You can fool your friends who do not know about this yet, and have some fun seeing the expression of joy and fear in your little one’s face. It’s just half a minute but it’s entirely worth it, helluva exciting! Check out Mars 3D, Jupiter 3D and others too, it’s fun.
