The current situation of detention in house that we live in many countries of the world, including Spain, is leading many users to use more their mobile phones or their tvs.
One of the reasons is that children are more time at home, and there are that distract you in the best possible way.

Animals in 3D with AR Core, the augmented reality of Google
For a long time Google is betting on augmented reality into their applications. We have seen quite eye catching in Google Maps or Google Lens but there is also a function of this type within the Google search engine.
To make use of the same, we just have to perform a search with certain names. For example, we can look for tiger, horse, wolf, dog, bear or shark among others and in all cases we will be given the option to open a model in three-dimensional animated of this animal.
When we do we will be asked permission to use the phone’s camera and after doing so the model will appear.
We can move around him and even interacting with the passing of the hand behind, or to get the kids to move around.
We can also change the scale with a pinch in the screen, as we do with the photos, and put it on top of a table and show it to the youngest, to discuss things of the same, and teach them what these animals are.
