Dreams do come true, sort of.
Wild animals aren’t meant to be pets and should never be kept in captivity. However, one way or another we must have all dreamt about having an extraordinary pet. It may be to show off during the bring-your-pet-to-school day or just because wild animals are kind of badass.
Most of those dreams remained as such, while we mostly lived vicariously through our local zoos and documentaries. On a realistic note, taking care of a wild animal in our backyards would surely be impossible and the chances of us getting shredded to pieces would certainly be high.
Now that we can’t really go to zoos to quench our thirst, how would you like it if your favorite wild animals were to visit you right in your room?
Ever since the I/O conference in 2019, Google has been adding 3D animals under their respective search results that can be viewed in Augmented reality. Once you click on the “View in 3D” button, a size accurate digital version of your selected animal appears on your screen and in your room.
Currently, there are more than 30 animals that can be viewed in AR and it has been a blessing for people who are on the edge of losing their minds during the #socialdistancing.
It looks like we may lose some of our lands to animals after all.
Above all else, it looks to be a great opportunity to teach and have fun with our kids who must be quite “bored” due to missing school (we never thought we’d say those words on that order).
