Look at Life-size Animals in AR Through Google Search
It’s fun to watch Tiger King, but you don’t want to be Tiger King. But how about the image of a tiger (or elephant or giraffe or hedgehog), make it 3D and create an AR image of it on your smart device or AR headset. Here’s more form The Verge:
Back in May 2019, at its I/O developers conference, Google announced that it was bringing a neat feature to its search results: augmented reality models, which allow users to take a look at a 3D image of a search result.
