You can have a zoo at home for yourself thanks to Google’s initiative. In these days of social distancing, it’s easy to see children posing with the augmented reality feature from Google. All you need is to google an animal, for example: “tiger”, click the “view in 3D” button, then click “view in your space” to see the tiger moving in your own surroundings. There are loads of different animals you can see through the feature such as lion, panda, cheetah and shark. Your device will need to be AR-enabled and use Android 7.0 or iOS 11.0 or later. VNS
