Google is launching 23 augmented reality (AR) insects on Google Search. If you remember collecting insects as a child, then you will enjoy playing with these AR insects in your home or on the move. Afraid of bugs? Look away now…

To see one of the AR insects, users can search for the name of the insect, e.g. “Hercules beetle”, on their smartphone and click [View in 3D]. Users can freely zoom in and out on the AR insect to better understand details of the insect’s form, detail and movements. On Android devices, you can also hear insect sounds. Users can use the feature to see the animals in 3D, as well as being able to capture the insects in photos and videos.

This time, the following 23 insects will appear in AR.

Beetle, Hercules beetle, Atlas stag beetle, Saw beetle, Giant stag beetle, Beetle, Marmara chafer, Bupresitidae, Swallowtail butterfly, Butterfly dragonfly, Swallowtail butterfly, Morphine butterfly, Morpho butterfly, Yonagunisan, Mantis beetle, Larvae, Tobago.
