Thinking of the youngest who are studying at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Google decided to include new virtual lessons in the augmented reality search functionality for smartphones. Users can, for example, browse 3D models of the human body, explore the composition of cells and even discover the mysteries of Neil Armstrong's astronaut suit.
In collaboration with Biodigital, a company specializing in interactive 3D software, the new features allow exploring full-size representations of 11 systems of the human body. Google explains that, with them, kids and kids can also click on the different tags to learn more about certain parts of the body.
The technological giant has joined forces with Visible Body, a company in the area of realistic representations of the human body, to create interactive 3D models of cells of animals, plants and bacteria. Just zoom in to see what's going on inside the organisms.
With the isolation measures implemented by governments around the world, going to a museum has become a complicated task. However, with the augmented reality search functionality, the living room can easily be transformed into a museum to help young people discover the past.
But not everything: Google indicates that all Android smartphones compatible with augmented reality technology also come with features that make it easier to share all virtual learning adventures.
