When Google released the Augmented reality (AR) feature on Search, it has let many families enjoyed the fun of 3D objects and animals into their space. The search engine giant was pleased with the well-received innovation which many families experienced at their home. If you’re an avid Google Search 3D view user, let’s find out more AR features that has been developed by Google.
Virtual human body
Google has partnered with BioDigital so that everyone can explore 11 human body systems with AR in Search on mobile. Search for circulatory system and tap “View in 3D” to see a heart up close or look up skeletal system to trace the bones in the human body and see how they connect. You can read labels on each body part to learn more about it or view life-size images in AR to better understand its scale.
See the microscopic world through AR wonders
For tiny organisms, like cells, it is hard to envision unless you have a microscopic to magnified and learn about it. Visible Body collaborated with Google to deliver AR models of animal, plant and bacteria cells, including some of their key organelles. Try searching for animal cell and zoom into its nucleus to see how it stores DNA or search for mitochondria to learn what’s inside it. The AR technology can bring a 3D cell into your space to rotate it, zoom in and view details about its different components.

With the current situation happening, you are still not allowed to visit museum at any time soon. Fortunately, thanks to Google Arts & Culture and institutions like the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, you can make a mobile museum at your fingertips using AR. You can now search for Apollo 11 on your phone to see its command module in 3D. Not only that, you can look for Neil Armstrong life-size spacesuit and step inside the Chauvet Cave to get an up-close look at some of the world’s oldest known cave paintings, which are usually closed off to the public.
