Simply search the name of the creature on Google on a mobile phone and select the option to see it in 3D.
How about interacting virtually with dinosaurs from Jurassic World? With the Google search engine, this is now possible.
The company partnered with Universal Brand Development, Amblin Entertainment, and Ludia to bring the dinosaurs of the film franchise to life through augmented reality. The animals that were included in the tool are: Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor, Triceratops, Spinosaurus, Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Dilophosaurus, Pteranodon, and Parasaurolophus.
The models were created with the technology of the game “Jurassic World Alive” and have realistic characteristics, with enhanced colors and textures, among other details. “To create the 3D dinosaurs, our concept artists first did preliminary research to discover information about each creature,” explains Camilo Sanin, Ludia’s Character Creation Director, in a statement to the press.
“Our artists also worked with paleontologists and the ‘Jurassic World’ team to make the assets as accurate and realistic as possible. Even the smallest of details, such as irregularities of skin color and patterns, are important,” he added.
