Beam a virtual dino into your home

You might have already spotted that you can project 3D animals into your home via your phone, thanks to Google’s ‘augmented reality’ search feature. It’s now added dinosaurs, so you can play with a virtual T-Rex, stegosaurus or velociraptor. Just download Google Chrome to your phone, then search for a dinosaur. Click the ‘view in 3D button’, then ‘view in your space’ and you should see the creature prowling your room on your device’s screen.

It doesn’t work for every dinosaur, but some other ones we’ve tried include spinosaurus, pteranodon, triceratops and ankylosaurus.

To access this feature, your device will need to be AR (augmented reality) enabled, so this might not work on some older phones. The easiest way to find out is to try it to see.
