Google has blessed all the augmented reality (AR) fanatics yet again by adding 50 new AR animals on its Search platform that can be shared with friends and family right away.
The new ones to make it to the list are the red panda, giraffe, zebra, cow, pig, and even a hippo, among the rest.
The company launched the new AR animals through a quirky tweet on Saturday – “Hip(po), hip(po), hooray! There are 50 new AR animals to discover on Search. Search for your favourite animal on your Google mobile app, tap ‘View in 3D’ to see them in your space and don’t forget to share your best creations with #Google3D.,”
After beginning to showcase 3D animals within Search last year, the tech giant has expanded the roll rapidly, adding many new creatures, including alligators, ducks, and hedgehogs.
In August, the company let you witness ancient creatures in AR running around your home, controlled right from your smartphone. Seeing these creatures like the Cambropachycope, an ancient crustacean with a distinctive pointy head or the oldest large filter feeder, the fish that swims poorly, or the largest animal ever to live on Earth was a thrilling experience for many of us.
Google Arts & Culture recently stated, “In collaboration with institutions such as Moscow’s State Darwin Museum and London’s Natural History Museum, we’ve brought a menagerie of prehistoric animals back to digital life. Thanks to AR, you can see them up close through your phone.”
ARCore, Google’s augmented reality framework, is the tool that brings all these creatures to life through the Google Arts & Culture app. The app is free to download on both Android and iOS.
