Google brings dinosaurs back in augmented reality

Type ‘dinosaur’ in the search engine using a mobile device and select ‘view in 3D’ to bring up a Tyrannosaurus Rex in your living room.

The Google search engine will make dinosaurs appear in augmented reality.

Google brings back the dinosaurs from the Jurassic Park movie franchise with the help of its search engine (Google Search) and augmented reality (AR) technology.

In association with  Universal Brand Development,  Amblin Entertainment  and  Ludia , the search giant allows users to spawn ten of the dinosaurs that appear in  Jurassic Park , such as Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor, Triceratops, Spinosaurus, Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Dilophosaurus, Pteranodon, and Parasaurolophus.

To make them appear it is necessary to type “dinosaur” in the Google search engine on a mobile device and select the “View in 3D” option to be able to zoom and see the dinosaurs in great detail. Dinosaurs can be placed in any space and you can also hear the sound of their footsteps or the characteristic roars of each species.

This is not the first time that Google has played with augmented reality technology since Google recently added 3D and augmented reality experiences to searches (Google Search). However, dinosaurs pose a new challenge: their large size. 

“Android’s new auto scale feature can automatically calculate the distance between your phone and a surface in your space and resize the dinosaur to fit your phone’s screen,” Google wrote on its blog. 

This feature is already available on Android devices with Android version 7 and up, and on iOS on devices with iOS 11 onward.

Jurassic World: Dominion will  be released in theaters on June 11, 2021.
