With Pre-historic animals like Cambropachycope, or oldest large filter feeder, or the largest animal on earth ever to live has been brought back to life with help of AR.
“In collaboration with institutions like Moscow’s State Darwin Museum and London’s Natural History Museum we’ve brought a menagerie of Prehistoric animals back to digital life. Thanks to AR you can see them up close through your phone”, Google Arts and Culture said in a statement.
Google has also created an unusual collection of cultural artifacts for people to experience in AR. Pre-Inca ‘smiling god’ Lanzon from Circa 500 BCE, APOLLO 11 command module and many other paintings to decorate your space.
These are available on ‘Google Arts and Culture App’ on Android & iOS for free. These AR creatures have been recreated with the help from Google’s Augmented Reality framework called ARCore.
