Google is continually adding new functionality to their Search service, including augmented reality objects, whether it be animals or Baby Yoda. The later comes out just in time for The Mandalorian’s Season 2 finale, and lets you place the character just about anywhere in your home. To try it out yourself, simply open the browser on an iOS or Android device, search for “The Child” or “Baby Yoda”, scroll down until you see the character card, and then click “View in 3D”. Read more for a short video demonstration.
After clicking “View in 3D”, just wait until the camera view shows up and wave your device around until the character appears. You’ll be able to move it around until the size fits the room. On a related note, did you know that the actual puppet was designed by Legacy Effects and cost about $5 million to make? That’s right, it’s controlled by two technicians, one who operates the eyes and mouth and another who controls other facial expressions.
