Google has announced that people searching for dinosaurs in the dedicated Search engine will be able to see the gigantic reptiles in augmented reality.
Just over a year ago, Google Search results of select animals on certain smartphones began being accompanied by a “View in 3D” option which, when tapped, presented users with an AR version of the animal which they could view, rotate and flip upside down in their space. As if that wasn’t enough, Google announced Tuesday that it has added dinosaurs to the catalogue of virtual animals so people can see just how a tyrannosaurus rex measures up to their home or themselves.
Thought AR cats and tigers were fun? Now you can turn your home into #JurassicWorld with AR dinosaurs. Search for dinosaurs using your mobile device and tap “View in 3D” to see them in your room. Share your best creations using #Google3D #3Ddinos. https://t.co/BjAYYywfoX 🦕🦖 pic.twitter.com/QXjd7RhEtz

To accomplish this, Google partnered with Universal Brand Development, Amblin Entertainment and Ludia to bring 10 dinos from “Jurassic World” to the search engine: the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor, Triceratops, Spinosaurus, Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Dilophosaurus, Pteranodon and Parasaurolophus. The company strived to make each model as realistic as possible; according to the team, even “irregularities of skin colour and patterns are important.”
Users can access these VR dinosaurs by simply typing “dinosaur” into Google Search or looking up any of the individual breeds and tapping on “View in 3D.”
