Most of the world is stuck at home right now, but those who don’t mind a virtual visit to the zoo, Google’s Augmented Reality (AR) has come to the rescue. That’s right, you’ll be able to interacted with life-sized animals right through the Google search panel. Simply by searching for a panda, tiger or even cheetah will provide an explanation about the animal, along with a prompt to meet a life-sized version up close.

By selecting ‘View in 3D’, a 3D model is generated that lets users spin it around and interact with on their phones. The animal can also move around while investigating their environment as you observe. Click the ‘View in Your Space’ button, and you’ll be asked to scan a flat surface using the camera before placing the 3D animal in the room. It can either be life-sized or miniaturized to fit the space.
