To use the feature you’ll need to have the Google App installed, then search for one of the characters in the search bar. Scrolling down will give you a View In 3D option, where if you’ve enabled access to your camera and phone storage, the app will project a 3D model of the aforementioned character.
What’s really cool is that Google got a vast selection of mecha, all of which can be viewed at “full-size”. Of course, this usually means just staring at a pair of giant 3D ankles, but it’ll definitely make for a lot of fun if you have the space for it. You can also use Google to view them at a smaller size, getting a human-sized Gundam instead.
Here’s a full list of the characters you can type into the Google search bar:
|Ultraman Belial||Taiko Master|
|Eva Unit 01 (Evangelion)||Hello Kitty|
|Gundam Penelope||Little Twin Stars|
This feature wasn’t always used to promote fictional characters though. Google AR could also be used to look at 3d models of animals and other educational topics, making it a great educational tool, especially if you’re stuck inside.
