Life found a way with Google's 'Jurassic World' AR models

Jurassic World T Rex

Just open the links on your phone or search for the terms via the Google app/Chrome and look for the "View in 3D" button. By tapping a "View actual size" button, you'll be able to quickly switch to the correct scale, though a brachiosaurus will probably not fit your average living room. Android users can also turn up the volume to hear thudding footsteps and dinosaur roars. "Using technology from Ludia's "Jurassic World Alive" game, these AR dinosaurs are some of the most realistic models out there", Google noted in an official blog post. Check out this video to see how an AR Brachiosaurus is made, including 3D modeling, texturing and animation.

"To create the 3D dinosaurs, our concept artists first did preliminary research to discover information about each creature", Camilo Sanin, Ludia's lead on character creations said in a statement.

"Even the smallest details, such as irregularities of skin colour and patterns, are important".

It must be noted that unlike some of Google's AR animals, like a dog or tiger, dinosaurs pose a new technical challenge - "their massive size". Click that, and it'll activate your camera and allow you to see the size, scale, and features of a prehistoric animal up close in whatever environment you're in. You will have the option of seeing the dinosaur fitted across your phone's screen or gaze upon it in all its glorious size, provided it fits in the space you are now in.

Just over a year ago, Google Search results of select animals on certain smartphones began being accompanied by a "View in 3D" option which, when tapped, presented users with an AR version of the animal which they could view, rotate and flip upside down in their space.

USA warns firms of human rights abuse risks in China's Xinjiang province
The United States bans the import of goods made entirely or in part by forced labor, whether prison work or bonded or forced child labor.

Users can see 3D content on devices running with Android 7 and above, and can see AR content on ARCore-enabled devices.

One can easily explore all dinosaurs using the carousel format.

On iOS do the same in the Google app, Chrome or Safari browser.

Not long after Google's change to bring 3D models to Google search, it's adding dinosaurs. Ludia, the studio behind the game, says that its artists worked with paleontologists and the team behind the "Jurassic World" movie franchise to create realistic models. Safe traveling (back in time)!
