Want to see muscle flexion in front of you on your study table, while studying it?
Or, see the shoes you are buying online from all directions and place them by your clothes to see whether they are a good match?
We have all read about the humongous length of a great white shark time and again but does that give you a concrete idea? Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could actually see a great white shark up close? Place it in front of you to see how big it actually is?
With just one google search?
Now, you’ll be able to do it. That’s what Google promised in its I/O 2019.
Google is integrating 3D augmented reality models to its Search oeuvre and we can expect them in our search results later this year. Google is also leveraging the power of the camera in phones to its maximum through Google Lens. Lens, which can be accessed directly through Google Assistant and is also built into Photos and Camera app, will now be able to do more than just answer your questions related to the image you scan. Google is partnering with museums, restaurants, magazine publishers and retailers to bring unique visual experiences by bringing a surface image to life like playing a how to cook video when the camera is pointed at its recipe on a magazine. Google Lens updates include searching for a dish penned down on the menu card in a restaurant by simply pointing your camera to it and the next thing you know, it shows you pictures of how the dish looks even before you order, thus, giving you a better idea of what to order after all! Still confused? You can now simply point your camera at the menu and Google Lens will automatically highlight the most popular dishes of the restaurant for you. Also, Google Lens can now translate the words you see around you on a daily basis and read them aloud in your own language. What’s more, instead of looking at arrows on the Maps to go somewhere new, you can now place the arrows right where you need them, on the streets!
This year at I/O, Google integrated AR with its entire event, encouraging attendees to use I/O app and explore and navigate the entire event with the help of it.
